Student Employment Policies

Student Wage Structure

On-campus jobs are categorized into four levels with varying pay rates, in addition to Level 5 jobs for stipends. Learn more about how this works and what it means for you.

Work-Study Policies

All students (including those not on work-study) may not work more than 8-10 hours per week on-campus during the academic terms.

Level 1 jobs are only available to students with work-study (although students with work-study may pursue Level 2-4 jobs as well).

Students without work-study may pursue Level 2-4 jobs. If you are unsure about your work-study status, contact Student Financial Services or the Student Employment Office.

Application Requirements

All on-campus jobs require you to submit a resume and/or cover letter in JobX. Review our resume guide and come to the CDC to work on your application materials.

Getting Paid

In order to track the time that you work and get paid, you will keep a timesheet. Be sure to read our instructions for acquiring and submitting your timesheet, setting up direct deposit, and more.

Student Work Clearance

In order to work on campus, all students must complete the following forms: Federal Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9), Federal Tax (W4), and the Massachusetts State Tax (M4). Forms and instructions are available on the Human Resources webpage.
