The hiring process has four stages.
- A supervisor interviews and selects a qualified student for a specific job.
- Any student who accepts the offer of on-campus employment must report to the Student Employment Program Office to complete employment eligibility documents, employment authorization forms, income tax forms and present documentation required by the University, the State of Connecticut and the federal government. Completion of this paperwork generally takes no more than fifteen minutes.
- The student must then wait to receive confirmation via electronic mail from the Student Employment Program staff, of the actual employment authorization start date. During this waiting period, the Student Employment Program staff work with the University Administration at the Storrs campus to get the student approved for employment and to add the student to the University's payroll.
- Student Employment Program staff will notify both the student and the hiring supervisor as soon as the student has been cleared to begin working. This written approval must be received BEFORE the student may begin to work and the e-mail notification marks the conclusion of the hiring process.
The paperwork required at time of hire varies based on a number of factors specific to the individual's enrollment status, citizenship and prior UConn employment history. Additional information is available online, for typical student circumstances. (See Non-UConn Students and International Students below)
