Learning Objectives for Our Federal Work-Study Students...
The purpose of the Federal Work-Study and Campus Employment Programs is to promote part-time employment for students. Only students awarded Federal Work-Study or Campus Employment are eligible to work on campus. You can review your Award Letter in your WebAdvisor account to see if you have been awarded student employment. It is up to each student to secure employment, as jobs are not guaranteed.
Payment for Federal Work-Study or Campus Employment is currently $11.25/hour for the Portland campus. Paychecks are dispersed once a month on the 10th.

Eligible Federal Work-Study and campus employment students will be notified through their Linfield e-mail of any available position. Students need to follow the instructions in these emails to apply for job placement. Prior to being hired, students will need to have all requirements completed and contact the hiring supervisor to arrange a work schedule.
Student employment positions require regular and prompt attendance and professional work habits. Students are expected to notify their supervisor when they are unable to work scheduled hours. Failure to conform to normal work standards may result in termination.
Once a student has completed all required paperwork to begin working, Human Resources will create an ADP TimeSaver account for the student. Students will enter their hours worked into TimeSaver.
The department supervisor must submit the student's hours to Payroll through TimeSaver no later than the first business day of the following month.
Paychecks will be available in the Enrollment Services office on the tenth of every month. Earnings are not credited to a student’s account unless special arrangements have been made with the Accounting Office. Therefore, students should subtract the amount of the Work-Study awarded from their total financial aid package when determining the amount of aid that will directly credited to their account.
For students interested in direct deposit please fill out direct deposit form and submit to Enrollment Services Office, 1st Floor of Loveridge Hall.

The hours that students are eligible to work vary and are dependent on the amount of money they have been awarded for work study or campus employment. Payment for Federal Work Study or Campus Employment is currently $11.25/hour. Wages are based on the Oregon state minimum wage. Depending on the location of the employment, Oregon minimum wage varies. It is the student’s responsibility to monitor their wages earned so they do not exceed their financial aid award. The financial aid office will only notify students when they are nearing the limit of their allotted awarded amounts.

If a student opts to receive their paychecks via Direct Deposit, they will still receive a pay statement for each pay period, and will be contacted to pick them up in Enrollment Services. Students can opt to turn off these pay statements by logging into in the Self Service Portal (see Self Service Portal Access above to register if required.) Once you have logged in, select "Pay Statements" from the Pay & Taxes dropdown menu, then select "Go Paperless".
