Hiring Update

October 15th was the last day for work-study students to secure employment, and we have cancelled awards for students not hired prior to the deadline. Students currently on study-abroad have an extension to secure their employment through January 31st. A reminder, work-study students, whose work award status has not changed from the previous academic year are not required to have a new background check if rehired within 120 days of previous separation date. A student who last worked in June--and is not hired at this point--will need a new background check submitted.

Award Increases

Unfortunately, we are not accepting requests for award increases. With cuts to our work study funding this year, we still have many work-study positions which have gone unfilled. Our current projections indicate our work-study funding has been fully allocated. If funds become available to award, we will notify students from the waitlist.

Monitoring Student Earnings

It is a supervisor’s responsibility to monitor work-study employee earnings to ensure a student does not earn more than their award. In such an event, your department is responsible for paying the overage out of your operating budget. To prevent this from occurring, you can monitor earnings using Banner form RZIWORK or Banner report RJRDPPR. If you do not have access, please complete a Banner Security Request Form for Financial Aid access.

Student Employment Website

If your department has filled your work-study position, please send an email to stuemp@du.edu so that we may remove the job posting as quickly as possible. We would like for study abroad students to have an idea of the departments that are still looking for support.

If your department decides to fill vacant positions with non-work-study students, please post your job opening on the Human Resources website. Our office will direct students without work-study to this site. If you have any questions on posting, please contact Human Resources at 1-7420.

Please contact us if you have any questions regarding Student Employment.
