Student Employment


Colorado College designs the student employment experience to enable students to work on and off campus part time (up to full-time hours in the summer) to advance skills, build resumes and earn funds to support their educational goals and continue professional development growth while supporting college needs as well.


Most, but not all, students receive work-study or institutional employment as part of their financial aid award. Federal and Colorado governments provide employment funding (work-study) to the college for eligible students.

Because of these funding sources, the college asks campus employers to give preference in hiring to students with federal or state work-study eligibility, or to students who have institutional student employment as part of their financial aid award.

You must be a current student and enrolled at least half-time in order to be employed.

Student Employment Process

  1. Supervisors should post all student employment opportunities to Handshake where students can log in through single sign-on and apply.
  2. Students should apply through Handshake with their cover letter and resume. Students should mention in their cover letter if they have a work-study award as this provides a hiring preference.
  3. Selected applicants will then interview with supervisor.
  4. Those selected will need to complete the Student Employment Paperwork if not yet done. This is a one time requirement.
  5. Supervisors will then submit a new hire EPAF to hire the selected student.

After Finding a Job

Once you are hired you must:

1. Visit the CC Office of Financial Aid & Student Employment (in the Spencer Center, room 134) to complete your Student Employee Hiring Packet with your original, unexpired, identification documents (view link above for more information on acceptable documentation).

2. Have your supervisor complete an EPAF.

** Please note, you are not allowed to start working or attend any work-related training sessions until you have an active timesheet for that job displaying in Banner SSB.  An active timesheet will not display until steps 1 and 2 above are completed and processed successfully**

Logging Hours

  • To log in your hours and submit time sheets, you must log in to Self-Service Banner, click on Employee tab, and then choose Time sheet. From the drop down menu, select the correct pay period and start entering your hours.

For any time sheet questions, please contact the Student Employment Office located in the Spencer Center: 719-389-6908.

  • Please remember that time sheets MUST be submitted to your supervisor by the deadline given on the Payroll Calendar. Failure to do so will cause your paycheck/direct deposit to be delayed.
  • You may notice a time when a time sheet is no longer available. This happens right after the pay period's end in order for the Payroll Office to process these time sheets but it will re-open in 2-3 business days.

Getting Paid

  • Colorado College pays student employees on semi-monthly basis.
    • Checks or direct deposits according the payroll schedule.
    • If you do not submit your time sheet on time, you will not get paid on time and will have to wait until the next pay date.
  • Paychecks will be delivered to your Worner box if you do not have direct deposit set up or to your designated bank account if direct deposit is set up.

It is the student's responsibility to be sure to submit all necessary paperwork in order to get paid. If you accept ANY job on campus, you must make sure that you have student employment paperwork on file.

For complete information about Student Employment, please read through the Student Employment Handbook posted above.
