ONU Student Employment Program
Ohio Northern University’s student employment program enables students to acquire federal-work-study (FWS) and non-work-study (NWS) positions on campus. The FWS program enables eligible students to acquire work-study jobs; the NWS program is available to students who do not qualify for federal-work-study aid but still wish to find student employment jobs on campus. Although FWS is a part of a student’s financial aid package, earnings do not credit their tuition bill directly; the student earns a paycheck based on an hourly rate of pay. For more information on the FWS program and eligibility requirements, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 1-419-772-2612. Summer employment is considered NWS regardless if the student is eligible for FWS aid, therefore it does not reduce FWS awards. Payment of wages for summer employment is mandatory direct deposit. All student employment opportunities can be found on the Office of Career Services website.
- Hours worked: Students should not work more than 15 hours per week when classes are in session and 40 hours per week when classes are not in session (i.e. holidays, breaks, summer, etc.)
- Starting Work: Before a student can begin work, all required forms must be completed and submitted to the Office of Human Resources.
- Work During Breaks: Students are permitted to work between academic terms and during breaks.
- Class Schedule: Federal regulations prohibit students from working during their scheduled class times, regardless if the student is in a FWS or NWS position. Students should provide a copy of their class schedule to their supervisors each term and arrange a work schedule which does not conflict with classes. Students must be in good academic standing to continue in working on campus.
- Time-Sheet Falsification: Any student who falsifies his or her hours worked will be referred to the appropriate campus authority for investigation. Students who are proven to have engaged in such conduct may expect serious consequences, including termination from their position.
- Sexual Harassment: The University maintains an environment for work and study free from sexual harassment. Everyone is encouraged to report concerns or complaints. Prompt corrective measures will be taken to stop sexual harassment whenever it occurs.
- Dress Code: Dress code will vary based upon position and is dependent on the work environment and setting.
- Confidentiality: During the course of the work day, student may encounter information that cannot be shared. Students must maintain confidentiality of the work place at all times. Based on the type of work students are doing, departments may require a confidentiality agreement; examples of these forms can be obtained by contacting the Office of Human Resources at 419-772-2013.
- Schedule: Students should report to work promptly as scheduled. Students need to notify their supervisor when they will be late or unable to work.
