Application Process

First-time Employees

Before starting your first student employment position at Bethany Lutheran College, your I-9 form and W-4 form must be completed in person at the Student Employment Information Session. Check the Opening Week schedule for date, time, and location of the session. Students who are not able to attend the information session (including those starting in the spring semester) are asked to contact the Human Resources office before they begin applying for student jobs.

No student is allowed to work until they have presented all of the required forms and identification documents in person. An I-9 form and original forms of identification must be presented in person. You can download the full I-9 form and instructions from USCIS.gov. A list of acceptable identification documents can be found on the last page of the form. (Note that if you do not choose to use documentation under List A you will need to provide a form of documentation from both List B and List C.) Photocopies, scanned copies, or faxes of any documentation are not allowed; only original documents can be accepted.

If you have been awarded work-study financial aid, you may pick up your employment contract from Connie Gullixson (Old Main 213) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Next, with class schedule in hand, contact the supervisor of the job sought and ask them to sign the contract.

If you have NOT been awarded work-study financial aid, take your class schedule to the supervisor of the job sought.

Next, pick up your contract from Connie Gullixson (Old Main 213) between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Return the contract to the supervisor and ask them to sign it.

Next, take the signed contract to Connie Gullixson, complete any necessary paperwork, and read the Student Employment Handbook. Students selected for employment are subject to the polices and procedures set forth in the Employee Handbook. Your supervisor will let you know when to start work.

Contact Connie if you have questions about applying for a job, or contact your supervisor with questions about your job.

All student workers will be required to complete “Bloodborne Pathogens” and “Employee Right to Understand” training. This training is provided online by SafeColleges.
