Student Employment & Graduate Assistants
Anderson University offers part-time jobs to enrolled students. These jobs are often related to students’ academic or professional interests.
Working on campus allows a student to earn money for college expenses, establish a work record, develop useful professional skills, and provide an opportunity for interaction with faculty, staff, and fellow students. Learn how to search and apply for student employment.
AU is an equal-opportunity employer. To be eligible for student employment, students must:
- Be registered for at least 6 hours of classes (or for the next semester during periods of non-enrollment). Incoming students need to pay the enrollment deposit for the fall semester to be eligible for student employment the preceding summer.
- Maintain satisfactory academic progress.
- Support the university’s mission to provide quality education in a Christian environment.
When hired for a student job, you will receive an email from Paycom.com to request completion of the Student Employment Application, Federal and State Tax forms, I-9 form, and banking information for direct deposit of bi-weekly paycheck. You will need to bring the identification needed for the I-9 to the Office of Work Life Engagement, Decker Hall, Suite 112 prior to beginning work. (Example: Unexpired passport or your AU ID Card and either social security card or birth certificate) See complete list here.
The majority of student positions pay an hourly wage. The hourly wage is determined by the student wage category of the position. There are also some stipend positions available (see below). Because students are part-time temporary employees, they do not receive benefits such as paid holidays and health insurance, but they are covered under Worker’s Compensation. Student employees are paid according to the AU Biweekly Payroll Schedule. We encourage all employees to review time cards for correct information and pay stubs for correct payroll and deductions by going to Paycom.com or using the Paycom app.
For more information on student employment, including tax exemptions and hour restrictions, please consult the Anderson University Student Employee Handbook.
