Introduction

Purpose of Student Employment

The purpose of the Student Employment Program is to assist students in meeting some of their expenses through employment and to provide an orderly process through which students are hired on campus.

The material in this handbook has been prepared to assist both campus supervisors and student employees with the policies and procedures pertaining to the employment of students at the Ferris State University campus. Other than a few procedural differences, the policies and guidelines in this handbook apply equally to Work Study, and Non-Work Award student employees.

The Student Employment Office reports to the Financial Aid Office, which is a part of Enrollment Services. The Student Employment Office also handles off-campus employment to better serve the students who utilize the services provided.

The Student Employment Office is responsible for posting the open job positions, processing hiring forms and for inputting students into the payroll system.


Commitment to Work Study Award Students

Ferris State University has made a commitment to give priority to those students who show a need to work and have been awarded Work Study.
