Campus Jobs



At UNI, student employment is more than a paycheck. From doing research between classes next to an accomplished professor, or leading an exercise class to keep your fellow Panthers healthy, or assisting with an event for a national leader visiting campus. These are just a few of the 200+ unique jobs at UNI that over 2000 student employees work in to prepare themselves for life after graduation. 

Students at UNI can work up to 20 hours per week  (FT during breaks). Pay depends on skill and demand, with most positions paying approximately $10 per hour. The vast majority of the positions do not require Federal Work Study.

If you plan to work during your time at UNI, be sure to have original copies of ID (most common are a Social Security Card and drivers license) so we can process your hiring paperwork without delay.

Newly hired students must complete the following paperwork within 3 days of starting a new position (it may also be completed prior to starting work). Failure to complete the paperwork within 3 days of starting will result in termination - as mandated by federal law. 

FORM 1: The I-9
Section 1 of the I-9 can be completed immediately. Section 2 must be completed in-person with a official University representative. The new hire must bring original identification. Section 2 must be completed within 3 days of the employment start date. 

FORM 2: W-4 (both state and federal)
To complete this section, the new hire will login to eBiz, the employee management system for UNI. Once logged in, select "UNI Student Employee Self Services" and then "W-4 Form Withholding Allowance." Complete both the federal and state W-4 tax forms. If you do not complete your W-4 forms, your withholding will default to single with no other adjustments. This may result in a higher tax liability. For insight into completing the W-4, read the IRS FAQ or email

FORM 3: Direct Deposit (required for UNI student employees)

In accordance with Federal law, all new hires must have their identification verified in-person with original documentation (photocopies and pictures are not allowed). New hire employees must be verified using the following documentation: A or B+C.
