Policies for Student Employment

  • While jobs posted on our website are intended to reach college students, employers must expect that jobs may be viewable by the general public. Even where web pages offer restricted access, job postings may be conveyed by those with access to others without access.

    Note: due to safety concerns, private in-home job postings (i.e., babysitting, yard work, housekeeping, personal assistant) will not be advertised on the off-campus student employment site.

    The following policies are established by the Student Employment Program and its affiliates.

    1. The Student Employment Program (SEP) acts only as an advertising service and makes no particular recommendation regarding employers. We make no guarantees or representations about positions posted by our office. The Student Employment Program is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or other various aspects of employment. Due to the volume of job announcements received by this office, we are unable to research the integrity of each person or business that lists a job with us. We, therefore, urge you to undertake this responsibility.
    2. Off-campus job vacancies are posted for the duration of each semester. Employers are encouraged to notify the SEP if their position is filled so that it can be promptly removed from the vacancy list. At the end of each semester, correspondence will be sent to the employer in order to gather employment information pertaining to the number of IUP students employed, how many weeks employed, how many hours worked per week, and the hourly wage. Because the SEP is provided federal funds to operate the program, documentation is required by the Federal Government supporting that IUP students working off campus earn more money than is provided to facilitate the program. 
    3. On-campus vacancies are handled through the Human Resources office. 
    4. Additional policies regarding on-campus student employment can be obtained on the Student Payroll website. Policies include, but are not limited to:
      • Eligibility for employment
      • Application requirements/employment available
      • Payroll information
      • Pay schedules
      • Student back-hour information
      • Student wage rates
      • Web time-entry information
