Student Employment Additional Information Form

The Student Employment Information Form is available for supervisors to collect basic information from student applicants, including their eligibility for work-study, availability and prior work/volunteer experience. Supervisors can collect other information as part of the application process. Students are encouraged to submit this online form along with other requested materials to potential supervisors.

Work-Study: When considering student employees, on-campus departments are encouraged to hire work-study students. This will help ensure that students with the most need of employment are prioritized for on-campus jobs.
