Who can be employed?
Any Baylor University student who is interested in working on campus may compete for on campus jobs, after the priority deadline for Federal Work-Study eligible students.
When can I begin searching for a job?
All students may begin interviewing for on campus jobs after the priority deadline, usually three weeks into the Fall semester. At this time all available on campus jobs will be open to any Baylor University students who would like to apply.
What is the priority deadline?
The Student Financial Aid Office will set a deadline (usually three weeks into the Fall semester) when on campus employment will be open to all Baylor University students. The priority deadline for Fall 2013 is September 9, 2013.
Why do some students get priority?
It is the policy of Baylor University to give priority for on campus employment to students who have completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have received, and accepted, financial aid through the Federal Work-Study program.
Can any student work in a community service designated job?
No. Due to federal regulations, community service designated jobs are available only to those students who are eligible for the Federal Work-Study program.
How much can I work on campus?
Several factors dictate how many hours per week a student can work on campus. Students:
Cannot earn more than the award amount and
Cannot work more than 20 hours per week while enrolled in classes. This is a Baylor policy intended to protect the academic pursuits of the student.
Example: Semester award divided by hourly wage equals number of hours. $1,325.00/$7.25 = 182.75 hours
Number of hours divided by number of weeks per semester equals number of hours to work per week. 182.75 hours/20 weeks = 9.14 hours per week
The budget of the hiring department may limit the student to a lower number of hours per week than they are eligible to work or would like to work.
