Required Trainings for Campus Employment

Training for Supervisors

Everyone who posts student employment positions in Handshake, and everyone who approves student workers’ time entry, must complete a one-hour online training for supervisors of student employees. Supervisors are asked to complete the training by August 1 of each academic year. Access to Handshake and to Web Time Entry will be granted upon verification of completion of the training. Contents of the one-hour training will include: how to create a new position, job descriptions, priority hiring, posting/hiring timeline, required documents, pay schedules and timely approval, federal work/study implications, and additional resources for supervisors. Please Note: There are no GPA requirements for campus employment.  The training will be updated to reflect the change. 

Training for Students

Effective this fall, student workers will also be required to complete a one-hour online training and quiz before beginning to work. Contents of the one-hour training will include: responsibilities of student employees (attendance, work schedule, work ethic and attitude, conditions of employment, etc.), relevant policies and practices, and time reporting and payment. Student employees will be required to complete the training between August 1 and their employment start date.  Please note: There are no GPA requirements for campus employment. The training will be updated to reflect the change.

Supervisors may download a list of students who have completed training. Login is required.

Both supervisors and students should be paid for this hour of training time.
