Welcome to the Student Employment Office!

Our office assists enrolled degree-seeking students in their employment endeavors. We also collaborate with on-campus supervisors, payroll coordinators, and off-campus employers to ensure the best student employment experience for all parties involved.

In collaboration with the University Payroll Office, Student Employment’s goal is to ensure BU student employees are paid accurately and in a timely fashion. We maintain personnel and payroll history for student employees and work closely with the International Students and Scholars Office and Financial Assistance to ensure that all federal and state regulations are met. We also provide employment verification, past and present, for students employed at the University.

We are an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. We are a VEVRAA Federal Contractor.
