Hiring Procedures

To hire a Work-Study or student employee to work in an office or lab, you should contact Richard Rigolini. The process differs slightly for Work-Study vs. student employment, but you’ll need to provide the rate of pay, account to be charged, and a brief description of the work the student will be performing.

Students enter their weekly hours online each week, and all supervisors are required to approve their students’ hours online as well. Students must submit their hours by 12 pm on Friday, and supervisors must approve these hours by 4 pm on Friday. A check is issued to a student the following Friday.


The Biology Department’s financial staff consists of Sara Martin, Business Manager; Richard Rigolini, Financial Administrator; and Barbara Colaggero, Senior Accounts Analyst. Any requests for reimbursements, vendor invoices, or petty cash should be processed through the financial staff in the Biology Office. Any reimbursements must be substantiated with original receipts. Reimbursement requests typically take 2-4 weeks for processing.

Human Resources

All new employees will be contacted by the University's Onboarding Specialist. An appointment will be made for you to go to Human Resources to complete your employment paperwork and obtain your BU ID (Terrier) Card.
