Supervisor Strategies That Really Work
Student employees pay a critical role on our college campus because they fill needs that can't be covered by traditional employees. Supervising these employees effectively, and ensuring that you are getting a reliable work product from them, presents unique challenges. See the tips provided by Great Lakes Higher Education for successfully supervising these unique team member. Supervisory Strategies That Really Work
Hiring Students with FWS funding
Federal Work Study Action forms are considered the PAF, which is used to hire students who have been awarded need-based FWS funds. Please email Student Employment the student's legal name to requiest the form. Do not complete both the PAF and the FWS Action Form. Please note: FWS awards are subject to change at any time and without notice as a result of a student's federally calculated demonstrated need. FWS Calculators are available to help give you an estimate of when FWS funding for your student will be exhausted. You can find the calculator on our website under For Employer-->Forms.
I-9 Process = 2 Steps
1. Department or student can send an email to
with the student’s email address. An I-9 Section 1 link will be sent to the student.
2. The student should take their original identification documents HR Express :
2525 West End Avenue, 2nd Floor
Hours are 7:30 am-5:30 pm, Monday-Friday
The law requires that the I-9 be completed within three business days of a student's effective hire date. Failure to do so will result in termination of the student’s campus job. You and your student will be notified if this transpires.
Encourage your student employees to sign up for direct deposit. Students can sign up in C2HR or download the DD Form on our website. Remeber, it can take up to 2 - 3 pay cycles for direct deposit approval. Until then, authorized department personnel must pick up the student's paychecks at HR Express each payday.
The payroll deadlines are posted on the Student Employment website. Please adhere to these dates to ensure your student is paid on time and to reduce the number of off-cycle check requests.
If the paperwork is not received by the Monthly deadline date, a Payment Correction Request is required. It is highly recommended that if you have paperwork that is due in Student Employment on the deadline date that you hand deliver it to our office to ensure we have time to process it.
If paperwork for hourly paid employees and/or timesheets is late the student will be paid on the next pay cycle. Tip: Paperwork is always due every 2nd Wednesday and paper timesheets at noon on the following Mondays. All due dates are highlighted on the payroll calendar on our website.
Changes in deadlines due to holidays will be emailed to departments.
Termination Process Update
Due to many payroll issues, future termination dates on hiring PAFs will not be processed for the UBA and MBB pay groups. All future termination dates on monthly paygroups, UM1/MM1) will be processed to prevent automatic pay.
An updated Department Guide is available online. Please take the time to read the guide and review all processes to reduce paperwork/timesheet errors. It is a great tool for new administrators who are completing hiring paperwork. Continue to use current hiring forms, which can be found on our website.
If you are unsure if a student has worked on Vanderbilt campus before or what paperwork is required, email the student’s legal name to Student Employment. We will let you know what is needed.
Student Employment receives a high volume of emails, paperwork, and paper timesheets at this time. Please email us once. We will respond in order of the requests/inquiries. Thank you in advance for your patience and hope you all have a great start to the semester!
