The objective of Student Employment is to provide students with real life work experiences. Students make important contributions to the university while gaining practical work experience.
If you plan to work at Clarkson, please note that the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires employers to verify the employment eligibility of all new employees. Clarkson requires documents to verify identity and eligibility for employment from all potential student employees. The Student Information Sheet, NYS Department of Labor Form, W-4 and I-9 forms must all be completed prior to the start of employment. As a new employee, you will need your original social security card and a picture ID (Clarkson Student ID or driver’s license) OR your original social security card and a valid Passport in order to complete the required paperwork. Please remember to bring originals of all the proper identification with you. Once you are hired for a position, your supervisor will begin the process with you to complete these required forms.
If you choose to opt out of the NYS Paid Family Leave benefit, please complete the Employee Opt-Out of Paid Family Leave Benefits form. More information on this benefit can be found at www.ny.gov/PaidFamilyLeave.
Clarkson offers eligible employees the opportunity to enroll in a Pension Plan. For more information, please contact Human Resources.
If you have financial need, as determined by the FAFSA, you may be eligible to work under the Federal Work Study Program. Federal Work Study money is allocated to the University by the federal government and jobs are contingent upon funding. If you do not qualify for Federal Work Study, you may be able to work on campus under the University Work Program (contingent on funding for individual departments).
