STUDENT EMPLOYMENT AT WKU
The Student Employment Program at Western Kentucky University provides employment opportunities for students who are in need of earnings from part-time employment in order to pursue a course of study at the university. The program is also designed to assist University departments in meeting their objectives through the use of qualified student employees.
Students who qualify for the Federal College Work-Study Program as established by guidelines of the U.S. Department of Education are paid from funds derived from the federal government and the university at the ratio of 75%-25%. If the student does not qualify for Federal College Work-Study, 100% of his/her salary is paid from the University's Institutional Funds.
All eligible students are encouraged to participate in student employment. Of course, it is important to remember, the students' first priority is to be a student. Employment should help create a well-rounded individual and should not be the primary focus of their educational experience at WKU.
Beginning late April 2011 you will have more payroll options. WKU is partnering with Higher One to streamline payroll disbursement. You will be able to have your student paycheck direct deposited to your OneAccount (WKU debit card) or an ACH transfer (direct deposit) to your existing bank account. Please log onto http://www.wkudebitcard.com to set or update your payroll preference.
