Student Employment


Students may receive assistance locating both on- and off-campus part-time jobs.  On-campus job referrals are based on selected qualifications, availability, and existing job vacancies.  Job vacancies vary throughout the calendar year.

During the fall and winter semesters jobs are extremely limited.  Successful applicants generally have 1) an available 2-4 hour block of time between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. daily, and 2) a willingness to accept any type of job, and work any hours.  However, the very best opportunity for on-campus jobs is during the Summer terms.

Job Application Procedures:

Students are eligible for on-campus employment if they:

1.      Are full-time students taking 12 semester, 6 block, or 1 summer term credit(s).

2.       Have not graduated or completed 140 cumulative credits.


3.       Are not on academic or Dean of Students’ probation.


4.       During Fall and/or Winter Semesters, students must be full-time, day-time students.


Students may go directly to the employers on campus for jobs or visit the Student Employment Office for assistance.  The Student Employment Office works on a “first come, first served” basis.  Job listings will be posted on the BYU-Idaho home page and the Student Employment job board.

If students are hired to work on-campus, they must complete all applicable paperwork in the Student Employment Office before they can begin work.

Federal government regulations require proof of identity and eligibility to work in the United States.  This requires either a U.S. passport OR an original U.S. Social Security card, or certified birth certificate AND a photo I.D. (original documents only, no photo copies or faxes)

International students must be cleared through the International Student Office and must obtain a Social Security card before they can be referred for an on-campus job.

The Student Employment Office is located in room 244 of the Kimball Building.  For general information call (208) 496-2176.
