Student Job Summaries of Available Positions

Health and Well-being Unit offers many different opportunities for students to join our team. Below is a listing of our main positions.

As Per University Policy: If you have not worked for the University previously, you must complete Student Employment Paperwork, before you can legally begin working. Be sure to bring original document(s) to meet the I-9 requirement listed here, (e.g., social security card, unexpired passport or birth certificate, etc.). You will need to show one original document from column A or a combination of one original document from both columns B and column C. The Office of Financial Aid/Student Employment will be open in a limited capacity to receive and process pre-employment paperwork for newly hired students starting August 14th. Due to physical distancing guidelines, you will also need to schedule a date and time that you will be able to stop by the Office of Financial Aid to complete this requirement. This will allow us to prevent crowding in an effort to conduct business as safely as possible.

If a domestic student is going to be attending the Fall semester remotely and they have worked on campus before (meaning they have completed pre-employment paperwork in-person), then they can be hired for remote work. If they are going to be attending remotely and have not worked on campus before, please contact our office.
