Samford University provides work opportunities for students through the two following programs: The Federal Work Study program (FWS) is need-based, as determined by the FAFSA, and the Institutional Student Employment Program (ISEP) which is not need-based.
Finding A Job
Follow the steps below to search for and obtain a job through one of Samford's Student Employment Programs:
- Students may contact employers about on-campus jobs directly.
- A list of available on campus positions with job description, job requirements and contact information are available from the menu on the left.
- A list of job possibilities through the Community Work Service Program are available for those with federal work study funds. Students will work with the Office of Financial Aid to obtain this type of employment.
Student Employment Authorization Card
Once a student employee has completed the required paperwork with Human Resources, they will be given a Student Employment Authorization Card as confirmation that they are eligible to begin working. No one should allow as student to perform any type of work without seeing their card.
Student Payroll Forms
While almost all Samford students are eligible to be hired for student employment, there is paperwork that must be done before they are allowed to perform any work whether it is an ongoing job, a short term job or a one-time task. To remain in compliance with federal regulations, first-time Samford student employees will need to complete the Student Payroll Forms after being hired but before beginning work.
