Hours Limitation

In accordance with Baylor policy, students may not work more than 20 hours per week while enrolled in classes. Students may not be scheduled to work during the times they are scheduled to be in class. It is the responsibility of both the student and supervisor to monitor the class and work schedule.


• Students are paid every two weeks based on actual hours worked. The current Payroll Schedule can also be accessed from a link on the Student Employment main page. The Payroll Office sends paychecks directly to the department. Students may pick-up paychecks from their supervisors.

• Sign up with the Payroll Office for Direct Deposit of your paycheck into your personal checking or savings account. On the Payroll Office's Forms page choose the form titled "Request for Deposit of Payroll Earnings" (the PDF version is recommended becauseit is fillable). You will be able to track your earnings by using Web for Employees (the same website used to complete your online timecard in the Webtime Entry system).
