Process to Apply for Student Employment:
Once you are hired:
Once the completed new hire forms are received and reviewed by a representative of Human Resources, you will receive a copy of the Student Checklist that is signed by HR to return to your hiring supervisor. This indicates to the hiring supervisor, that you are clear to start working any time thereafter. Again, you may NOT begin working for Liberty in any capacity until you have submitted a Student Checklist that is signed by HR to your hiring supervisor.
Therefore, you will continue to receive a check until the pre-note process has been completed successfully. *Pre-note refers to the process in which Liberty sends through a zero transaction amount to verify the bank account number is valid. HR will not mail any student paychecks that are not picked up prior to school breaks/holidays. All unclaimed paychecks will remain either with your department or in HR until the student returns to pick up after the break ends. If you will not be able to consistently pick up your paycheck before leaving for a school break/holiday, you may wish to consider signing up for direct deposit to ensure your receipt of the funds in a timely fashion. Students also have the option of having a portion of their check deducted and applied to their student account if desired.
If you have any questions regarding the student new hire process, please call(434) 592-7330 or visit the Human Resources Office between the hours of 8 AM–5 PM, Monday-Friday. The HR Office is closed Wednesday from am- for Convocation. The HR Office is located on the ground floor of Green Hall next to LUPD.
Students must maintain federal aid eligibility to continue in the federal work study program. If a student fails to meet the minimum requirements, federal work study could be revoked.
