  2. Financial Aid will post the job or jobs on the Financial Aid website under Student Employment.
  3. After your department has selected or approved a student to hire for the position, you should work with the student to complete the Student Employment Work Authorization (SEWA) form.
  4. The student should take the SEWA form to Financial Aid (Benedum Center) for processing.
  5. The student should then take the SEWA form to Human Resources (Benedum Center) for processing.
  6. The student will then return the SEWA form to the hiring supervisor, which will include the date the student can start working.

  1. If you want to apply for a specific job posting, please reach out to the contact listed for that posting to set up an interview.
  2. If you've been selected, work with your contact at the department to complete the Student Employment Work Authorization (SEWA) form.
