Student Employment

All PLU students at least 18 years of age are eligible and enrolled in at least six semester hours (or four semester hours for graduate students) 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 19 hours per week while school is in session.

Campus jobs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. You can find postings for open positions on the Student Employment website. 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 Office of Financial Services. If paychecks are not claimed within three weeks of payday, they are mailed to the permanent address. Student paydays are the 5th and 20th of the month. When the date falls on a weekend, the payday is moved to the previous Friday.
