Hiring New Student Employees

ENROLLMENT REQUIREMENTS

Students must be at least 16 years old and enrolled at an institute for higher education or high school to be eligible for student employment.  There are two student eligibility periods:  (1) academic year; and (2) summer session.  During the academic year, students must be enrolled for at least one credit.

HIRING PRIORITY

Students are employed on a priority basis with UW-Green Bay students receiving first priority.  Priority should be observed according to the Levels listed below.  Before Level II and Level III students are considered, a position must be posted in the PRO system to Level I students for a minimum of two weeks.

Level I

UW-Green Bay students, including new, transfer and specials, registered for at least one credit in the term they are expected to work.

For summer, students can continue employment from spring semester if they are registered for at least one credit in fall.

Level II

Students enrolled at another UW school for fall.  Supervisors are responsible for obtaining verification* of the student’s association with the school system.

Level III

Students enrolled at a non-UW accredited university, technical college, vocational/trade school, or high school.  Supervisors are responsible for obtaining verification* of the student’s association with the school system.

*NOTE:   Examples of documents that verify a student’s enrollment at a school are their class schedule for a current or future semester or a letter from the school confirming their enrollment.

If you are hiring a student from Level II and Level III, you will be able to indicate on the Student Employment Form or Lump Sum Authorization forms if the position was posted in PRO.

Open positions should be posted in the Phoenix Recruitment Online (PRO) site.  Jobs can be submitted by completing a fill-in-the-blank form found on the Student Employment website: http://www.uwgb.edu/student-employment/employers/opening.asp
