Admissions & Financial Aid Wabash Student Employment
The Wabash Student Employment Program - Description
Wabash Student Employment is awarded to students as part of their financial aid package and is a part-time on-campus work opportunity. Only those students with Wabash Student Employment and/or Federal College Work Study in their Financial Aid Award are allowed to work on campus. This is real work which needs to be done and students have the responsibility to work as scheduled and perform the assigned tasks. Student employees can lose their positions for non-performance or unreliability. A student will be paid biweekly as he works and this assistance should be used to cover a portion of his educational and personal expenses.
All students will be paid $10.00 per hour for campus employment during the academic year. To determine how many hours you will need to work each week to earn your full Wabash Student Employment eligibility, simply divide your Wabash Student Employment amount by $10.00, then by 30 weeks for the entire academic year. For example, a student packaged with $3,000 worth of Wabash Student Employment would need to work approximately 10 hours per week to earn his full eligibility ($3,000 divided by $10.00 divided by 30). Here is an Wabash Student Employment Calculator to help you.

Wabash Student Employment Eligibility
If you are unsure of your packaged Wabash Student Employmet amount, refer to your financial aid package on Ask Wally. The following is a list of maximum hours students are allowed to work each week when class is in session:

If you have not worked on campus before, and plan to utilize all or a portion of your Wabash Student Employment eligibility, you must provide documents verifying your eligibility to work in the U.S. (a requirement of the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service). You must present acceptable legal identification, a list of which is provided herein. Please read this list carefully to determine which documents you will need to present to the Business Office prior to employment. All documents must be original or official copies: faxes or hospital issued birth certificates cannot be accepted. Failure to complete this requirement means that you will not be paid!
All students with Wabash Student Employment in their financial aid package must complete a Wabash Student Employment Response Form (SERF) and submit it to the Financial Aid Office prior to securing an on campus job. Please click on the link: Online Wabash Student Employment Response Form
If you intend to utilize some of your Wabash Student Employment earnings to cover a portion of your balance due to the College, only the amounts you designate under D1, D2, and D3 of the SERF that you downloaded above, will appear as a credit on your bill with the College. Students who do not earn a sufficient amount to cover the portion of Wabash Student Employment for which they received credit on their bill must pay the remaining unearned portion of the credit to the College prior to the beginning of the next semester.
