Student Employment

All PLU students at least 18 years of age are eligible for employment on the PLU campus. In order to be employed, you must complete the Department of Homeland Security U.S. Citizen and Immigration Service I-9 Form, which confirms your eligibility to work in the U.S. To complete the I-9 form you must present original (not photocopied) documentation. Most students use a U.S. Passport or driver’s license or social security card. The full list of acceptable documentation is included in the I-9. Students are limited to working no more than 20 hours per week while school is in session. Campus jobs are available on first-come, first-serve basis. You can find postings for open positions on the Student Employment website. Campus jobs will normally pay between $9.47 and $12.00 per hour. They are convenient, do not require transportation and usually offer flexible schedules.

Direct Deposit is the University’s preferred method of payment and is managed in the Payroll Office. Paychecks may be picked up in the Business Office. If paychecks are not claimed within three weeks of payday, they are mailed to the permanent address. Student paydays are monthly on the 25th. When the date falls on a weekend, the payday is moved to the previous Friday.
