Student Employment Services is located on the second floor in the
Student Services Building.
The Student Employment Program offers a variety of jobs available throughout campus and is administered by Financial Aid Office. Students are paid on an hourly basis, usually at the SIU minimum wage rate, and normally work an average of 15 hours per week. Pay is for actual hours worked and benefits do not accrue with this type of employment.
Effective May 11, 2014, student employees will be limited to a maximum of 20 hours per week for any combination of multiple job types which include student employment. Information regarding multiple jobs can be found in the Student Employee Handbook.
This new policy is effective when school is in session, as well as any breaks or intersession periods. There are no exceptions to this policy.
