Student Employment

BSU strives to offer students a variety of employment opportunities that develop relevant skills, provide a reliable source of income, and has flexibility to accommodate the student’s course and extra-curricular schedules.

Eligibility

To be eligible to work on campus, you must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits during the academic year.  If you drop below 6 credits, your employment will be terminated.  Non-matriculated students, such as PSEO students, are not eligible to work on campus.  To work over the semester break or the summer, you must verify that you are enrolled for the following semester.

For more information on the eligibility for student employment, please visit the student Eligibility Requirements for Employment page.

Directions for Finding Employment on Campus

The primary responsibility for locating a work on campus rests with the student. You are encouraged to click on current student job openings to find out how to locate on-campus employment.

  • If you have never worked on campus before, you will need to bring an original Social Security card OR birth certificate AND photo ID (current driver’s license or BSU ID card). OR just a passport. This paperwork needs to be completed before you can begin working.

Wage Scale

As you work more hours, your wage will increase based on the following scale:

Hours Worked Wage Rate
000-750 $10.50
751-1000 $11.00
1001+ $11.50

Students are paid based on the same wage scale regardless of where they work on campus or whether they are working as regular payroll, work study, or over the summer.
