Student Employment

Effective January 1, 2024, California’s minimum wage will increase to $16.00 per hour. All current student employees with a pay rate below this amount will automatically be increased to the new minimum as of January 1, 2024.

All stateside student hiring must be processed through Human Resources.

  • To start the student hiring process, a completed Student Employment Packet must be received by Human Resources at least ten business days prior to the expected start date for the student employee. Positions that require a background check and/or LiveScan will require additional time for processing.
  • Hiring departments can email a completed Student Employment Packet to in order to initiate the student hiring process.
  • Student employees will receive an email from with instructions on completing our New Hire Onboarding Process.
  • Once the new hire completes all the required steps from our onboarding instructions, and after their employment and academic eligibility have been verified, the student employee and hiring department will receive an email from confirming the student’s employment authorization and effective dates of their appointment. 

Students may not begin working until they receive the Employment Authorization confirmation email from our office.
