Hiring a Boston University Work-Study Student

Students contact organizations and agencies directly to inquire about available jobs.

Upon finding a Boston University student you wish to hire, submit the Off-Campus Authorization Request Form, which students are instructed to bring to interviews. Submit this form only if you plan to hire a BU Work-Study student.

New agencies will be asked to sign and return the formal Work Agreement Contract, which is required of all off-campus agencies. Work Agreement Contracts must be updated every two years. We will notify you when the your contract must be updated.

New agencies may also be asked to submit additional information, such as the agency’s mission and funding source(s), as well as proof of nonprofit status.

Please Note: A student may not begin working until the employing agency has completed the Off-Campus Authorization Request form and has received written notification that the placement has been approved by the Work-Study Manager.

Placement approval usually takes between one and seven business days. Work-Study staff will notify the agency of placement approval by fax, or by mail if the agency does not have access to a fax machine.
