Student Employment Updates and Information

Summer Tidbits for Student Employment:
  • Contracts must be terminated for graduating seniors by Thursday, May 14, 2015.  A termination is only required if the graduating senior's contract extends beyond May 14, 2015.
  • We are asking departments to refrain from submitting the electronic contract and submitting the New Hire packets until June 15, 2015 for any contract starting after June 30, 2015.
  • All Federal Work Study (FWS) contracts must end on May 10, 2015.  If you wish to continue employing the student after May 10th, you will need to submit a new hire contract and indicate that your department will be responsible for 100% of the student's pay.
  • The last day to use paper contracts for New Hires or for Update/Change/Terminations is July 1, 2015.  (This does not include RA/TA/GA contracts).  After July 1, 2015, all contracts must be submitted electronically using Axiom.  (Axiom can be found on MyCharleston under the "My Forms" tab).
