The purpose of Adrian College Campus Employment is to help students build professional skills in a business-like setting.
Campus employment is also a great resume builder for students with little-to-no professional experience prior to an intern or externship the student may participate in while an Adrian College student.
Federal, State or College-funded Campus Employment (AKA Work-Study) is available to all students who attend Adrian College. Students are allotted up to $1,800 per academic year that they are eligible to make through Adrian College’s Campus Employment program. Once a student has reached their allotment for the academic year, they are asked to discontinue their Campus Employment until the next academic year.
Before a student can begin to work on campus, they must complete their tax documentation so they can obtain a ‘blue card’. All new work study students at the beginning of the year must fill out paper work in the payroll office to receive a blue card. You are only required to fill these forms out one time during your employment as a student worker unless your information changes such as a name change. The forms consist of W-4 for Federal Withholding, W-4 for State of Michigan Withholding, and the I-9 form (Employment Eligibility Verification).
Information required for the I-9 form could be one of the following documents:
- Current U.S. Passport or U.S. Passport Card - Only document required OR
- Driver's license or ID Card issued by State, or School I.D. Card with Photograph - WITH
- Original Social Security Account Number Card or Original or certified copy of birth certificate.
These are documents used most frequently but there are others that can be used. Please check with the payroll office for other information.
When the above information is completed students will then be issued a blue card and you can commence with working on campus. No time sheet or payroll check will be issued until this information has been recorded. Work study students who exceed their awarded amount may have other financial aid reduced.
Any student who is interested in Campus Employment and does not have a job, like traditional jobs, is responsible for finding their own employment. Students are to go anywhere they are interested in working and inquire about employment there. If the student is unsuccessful in finding a campus position the student can contact the Business Office to inquire about possible job openings.
Students are not permitted to have more than one on-campus position at a time. If a student finds new Campus Employment, their new supervisor must email the Business Office and the student’s time sheet with be redirected to their new supervisor (email@example.com).
All campus employers reserve the right to require students to sign confidentiality agreements and to hold students to individual employment disciplinary actions as they see fit.
Campus Employment payment occurs on a bi-weekly basis. Pay checks will be in the student mailboxes or commuter students will be available in the Student Business Service Center. Students can choose to apply a percentage of their Campus Employment funds toward their account balances or they can opt to keep the funds to use at their disposal.
