 Assignment Procedures

Work-Study employment for Fall starts no earlier than September 1. Contact the supervisor listed for the position you are interested in. Please have a resume available for your interview. Students must show the award letter of notification indicating their work-study eligibility to the supervisor before the interview. If you are new to the Work-Study program, upon notification that you have been hired, you must complete the Employment Eligibility Verification forms at the:

Administrative Service Center, 9050 Viscount
Personnel Service Department, Room # A130

Please have your Social Security Card and a picture ID (TX Drivers License, TX ID or your EPCC ID). The Personnel Department will provide you with a clearance form that you must take to your supervisor.

Your supervisor will then complete the (PAR) contract for you and provide you with a copy of the PAR, which indicates the total hours awarded per semester and the banner account number required on the timesheet.

(Note: If you are a current or returning work-study student you only need to complete the Personnel Action Record Form (PAR) with the supervisor.)
