Step 2. Complete the 2023-2024 Student Employment Appointment Questionnaire and insert details from the position description (approximately 15 minutes). A new Student Employment Appointment Questionnaire is required for each job posting.
Step 3. Within three business days, Human Resources will post the job in Workday. The supervisor views the job and screens applicants accordingly. Workday will prompt the necessary next steps between the supervisor and Human Resources throughout the candidate assessment process.
Step 4. Human Resources/Workday sends the selected student a notification/task/email with instructions to complete critical next steps for the new employee onboarding process. Your assistance is needed to remind your prospective student employee of the need to complete their Workday tasks promptly. This includes a background check, the I-9 employment verification, and tax forms.
Here are the details involved with the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification: The student will complete the first portion of the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form as part of their onboarding tasks in Workday. The second portion of the form is completed when they present their original forms of identification in person at the Office of Human Resources (Churchill Hall, Room 159). A list of acceptable forms of identification can be found on page three of the I-9 form. No work can be performed until the I-9 and onboarding steps are completed in their entirety.
Step 5. Meet with your new student employee to orient them with the department and position expectations. Assign work, verify hours submitted, and approve time through Workday time-tracking via Inside.SOU.edu and OKTA.
Midyear Adjustment to Existing Student Employment Positions
It is recognized that some student positions may evolve or require an adjustment during the current fiscal year. Supervisors may request changes to the following by using the 2023-2024 Workday Student Employment Midyear Change Form:
- Early Separation/Resignation
- Hourly Rate Increase
- Supervisor Change
Next Fiscal Year Existing Student Employee Reappointment
Supervisors seeking to continue employment for their existing student employee (effective on or after June 13, 2023) must take action by completing the 2023-2024 Student Employment Reappointment Form. Upon submission, an email confirmation will be sent and this is both the supervisor’s and student employee’s certified acknowledgment of the reappointment details.
Due to fiscal year-end Banner processes, reappointed student employees should expect delays in the availability of their July timesheet (June 13 - July 12). Supervisors will need to work together with their student employees to track all hours worked until at which time the July timesheet is built in Web Time Entry (WTE) around early/mid-July.
As a reminder Federal Work-Study for 2022-2023 ends on June 12. If a student wants to utilize Work-Study from the next fiscal year (2023-2024) over the summer (July 1 - September 12), they must be enrolled in at least 6 credits in the summer term and verify the availability of funds through the Financial Aid Department at email@example.com. The first day a student can utilize Work-Study funds for the next school year (if they are enrolled in fall but not in summer) is September 13.
