Student Employment

Student employment is a win-win opportunity.  Work on campus, earn money for spending or applying to tuition, and gain valuable work-related skills all at the same time.

The Basics

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT BASICS VIDEO - Check out this 5-minutes video on student employment at Emory & Henry College.

ANY STUDENT CAN WORK ON CAMPUS regardless of work study eligibility.  The only exception to this rule is RAs-Resident Advisors.  RAs cannot accept a student employment opportunity above and beyond their RA job UNLESS they are federal work study awarded. 

IMPORTANT:  Student employees and supervisors must wait for approval before any work can be completed.  Both parties will be notified via email once the paperwork has been processed and approved.

ALL STUDENT JOBS ARE POSTED ON E&H Connects and jobs are being added every day, so you will want to check often.  For more information on E&H Connects, see below.

TYPICALLY STUDENTS WORK NO MORE THAN 5-6 HOURS PER WEEK in their student employment job.  This can vary based on student schedule/obligations and employer needs. Summer student employees are authorized to work a maximum of 40 hours per week. 

STUDENTS ARE PAID BI-WEEKLY, which means they are paid every two weeks.
