Student Employment Center (SEC)

The Student Employment Center provides several resources to students and faculty regarding student employment.

For Students

For Employers

  • Wage reimbursements can be processed to contracted off-campus non-profit agencies employing Work-Study students
  • If departments wish to give pay raises to students working through the Work-Study program, they need to utilize the “Compensation Change” business process in Workday. This will route to the SEC staff for approval as long as the student remains in the Work-Study job profile
  • For Off-Campus Employers looking to post job advertisements to the Student Job Board, please fill out the Post a Job Form.
