Student Employment FAQs
Answers to most questions can also be found in the Student Employment Handbook.
How do I get a job on-campus?
The majority of on-campus positions require a work study award. You will need to check
the job boards on the HR website under Student Employment to see a list of available
positions. Most positions will usually request that you apply within. Bring your schedule
so you can determine if your availability meets the needs of the department. Once
you've received confirmation that you have been hired by a supervisor, you will need
to complete a new hire student employee paperwork packet available in the Office of
Human Resources. You will be required to present identification for completion of
the I-9. By law, this must be completed within three days of your start date as an
employee. You will also need verification of your bank routing number and account
number to sign up for direct deposit. If you do not complete this paperwork within
three days, you will be asked to stop working until you do.
How do I get Work Study?
Work study is awarded by the Office of Financial Aid to eligible students. Work study
is a need-based award, and completion of a FAFSA is required to determine eligibility.
Work study is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis so returning students must
complete their FAFSA by January 15 of each year in order to be considered for an award
for the following year.
*Once you've been awarded Work Study, you will have a limited amount of time to obtain
a job before your award is cancelled. For current deadline dates, contact the Office
of Financial Aid or the Office of Human Resources.
How do I know if I have received an award?
If you receive an award, it will show on your financial aid letter, and you will find
it in your UD online student account.
I don't have Work Study, can I still get a job on campus?
There are a small number of student jobs that are funded through department budgets,
or by on-campus contractors, such as Aramark (Cafeteria) and Follet Bookstore.
Aramark and Follet both accept applications throughout the year, though most of their
hiring is done at the beginning of each semester.
