The Office of Student Employment (OSE) staff works to ensure that all student employees are paid in a timely and accurate manor. We can offer you important information that will help this process along, including the Online Timesheet Tutorial on how to accurately submit your time sheets, what your pay rate will be and when the timesheet deadline dates are, and how often you will be paid.
Student Employment recommends that all students set up Direct Deposit. Once direct deposit is set up, your check will be automatically deposited into your checking or savings account. To sign up, fill out the direct deposit form (PDF) or pick up the form in the Office of Student Employment (OSE).
