The Federal Work-Study program provides employment opportunities for students. A percentage of a student's wages will be covered by these federal funds, and the remainder will come from Bucknell. Students work an average of about 8-10 hours per week, and are typically paid bi-weekly. Therefore, your Work-Study award should not be subtracted from your bill, since the amount earned will depend upon the hours worked. We also have other jobs for students who do not have Federal Work-Study as part of their financial aid packages. Except for students in the Presidential Fellow program, students are not "placed" in jobs at Bucknell, so they can apply for jobs that interest them.
Working can be a rewarding opportunity for many Bucknell students during their time on campus. Job openings are diverse and vary in many different departments across campus.
If you are planning on getting a job, please have documents that prove your identity and employment authorization. Once you are hired to work, several documents are required before you may begin:
Other Documentation Needed:
The documentation listed above is used to properly complete a W-4 and I-9 form at Payroll prior to the start of your employment. All documentation must be in the original and valid form, as no copies or faxes will be accepted. To see other acceptable documentation, please refer to Payroll's website (myBucknell login required).
Students are paid on a biweekly basis on Fridays. Direct deposit stubs are distributed to students through their campus mailbox and available on myBucknell. If you have any other questions regarding the student employment process at Bucknell University, please contact the Career Development Center.
