Learning Objectives for Our 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 (see your financial aid award letter to see if you qualify). It is up to each student to secure employment. Payment for Federal Work-Study or Campus Employment is currently $8.95/hour. Paychecks are dispersed once a month on the 10th.
As a work Study student it is your responsibility to complete the following trainings BEFORE applying for a job. You will need to provide printed certificates for the following two online courses to Araceli Ortiz for: Sexual Harassment Prevention Training and Preventing Employment Discrimination.
You are also responsible to complete the New Employee Safety Training. After your Linfield email account has been set up, please email Cosette McCraken at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know to enroll you in the 'New Employee Safety Training' course. Please allow for two to three days for the class to be added to your Blackboard after you've sent the email. Go to https://bblearn.linfield.edu/. and click into the '2011FA-SPEC101: Basic Safety Training course and follow the instructions.
All hire paperwork and mandatory trainings must be completed prior to beginning work-study or campus employment. All paperwork must be turned in to the financial aid counselor, Araceli Ortiz, located in Loveridge Hall, Suite 33. Upon completion of all requirements students will receive a hire slip which confirms that they are eligible to be hired.
Eligible work study and campus employment students will be notified through their Linfield e-mail of any available position. Students need to follow the indications in these emails to secure 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 supervisors when they are unable to work scheduled hours. Failure to conform to normal work standards may result in termination.
Students will enter their hours worked on a time card which will be submitted by the department supervisor to the Accounting Office every month. Paychecks will be available in the Accounting 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 the accounting office. Incomplete time cards will not be processed. Time cards can be picked up from the hub right outside of the Accounting Office or from the Financial Aid Office. Some departments do not use timecards so check with your hiring supervisor.
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 $8.95/hour. 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.
