Southwestern Adventist University is committed to providing a campus job to any student taking six or more credit hours. Students apply for a job by contacting the Student Employment Office. Many campus jobs will require that the student arrange a class schedule that will allow them to work all morning or all afternoon each weekday. Campus employment requires completion of the Federal I-9 form once the student has made arrangements with a department to work. The I-9 form MUST be turned in before the student can begin working. A student should be prepared to show documentation of identity and employment authorization. Original documents are mandatory, copies will not be accepted. Students will submit I-9 documentation to Campus Service.
