To be Eligible for On-Campus Jobs, a student must meet the following:

  • Enrolled in at least one credit hour at TWU
  • Complete the federal I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form at the time of hire.  This form requires documents to verify identity and employment eligibility.  Please view the List of Acceptable Documents to see which documents are allowed.
  • One document from List A or one document each for List B and C is required.
  • TWU participates in the federal E-Verify program for I-9 processing, and a student may not start working on campus until the I-9 and employment authorization through E-Verify have been completed.
  • Complete forms authorizing TWU to conduct a criminal background check, which is standard employment procedure. Students must pass a satisfactory background check in order to work on campus.
  • Additional Forms Required at Time of Hire.
    • W-4
    • Payment Option (direct Deposit or Check)
    • Proof of Selective Service Registration (male student only)    
    • Confidentiality Statement

Students working on campus are allowed to work a maximum of 20 hours per week when classes are in session. Students may work more than one job on campus, but the total amount of hours for all jobs combined may only be 20 hours per week maximum. On-campus jobs are classified by two categories.  Work Study, Non-work Study

To apply for a Work Study job, you must have been awarded a Work Study grant through Financial Aid.  For additional information regarding Work Study grants, including eligibility requirement and how to apply for a Work Study grant, please visit the Financial Aid website. 

Non-Work Study positions are reserved for students who do not receive Work Study.  If you have been awarded a Work Study grant, then you may apply for any Work Study position. If you have not been awarded a Work Study grant, then you may apply for any Non-Work Study position.

If this a work-study position, the department needs to request a copy of the applicant’s work-study award letter to verify the student has been awarded work-study funds. Failure to verify work-study status may result in the student not being paid as a work-study, but instead the department being responsible for covering 100% of the students’ wages. Departments will not be reimbursed for any payments made on a non-work study hire. The award needs to be verified each academic year (fall/spring) and summer sessions. It is the student and department’s responsibility to monitor earnings to be sure they do not exceed the work-study award amount. It is recommended to utilize the Payroll Summary by Account Report located under Administrative Management SQL Reports each month to monitor the work study/student assistance charges.
