How to get a student job on campus

All degree-seeking students registered at Augustana at least half-time (4 credits) may apply to work on campus. Student workers are paid $8.25 an hour. They may work up to 10 hours a week.

Getting started

✓ Look for a job using Handshake. Students are encouraged to search at the start fall term, and to visit the Office of Career Development to find out about job postings.

✓ Follow the directions to apply for jobs, or make an appointment with a career counselor.

✓ Read the Student Employment Handbook and electronically sign the acknowledgement form. (Handbook also is available as a PDF)

✓ Fill out required tax forms and show identification. (Those who didn't do this at summer registration may do so at the Payroll Office in Sorensen Hall.)

✓ Attend a training session on employment. Training is held twice a term. It will be on the career events calendar.
