On Campus Student Employment - COVD-19 Information

CURRENT STUDENT EMPLOYEES:

Our prayers and thoughts are with you all during this turbulent and uncertain time. In response to President Gash's email on March 11th, 2020, all on campus supervisors have received communication from our department asking to look into remote work opportunities for all student employees. Please connect with your individual supervisor regarding your ability to telecommute during the campus closure.

Starting Monday, March 16th, all in-person employment at all five schools will be suspended for the remainder of the spring semester. Please know that your safety and well-being are our top priority and University Administration has decided it is best to limit the number of individuals on each campus to only essential personnel due to the severity of COVID-19.

A pay continuation model was implemented effective March 16th that allowed work study students, who were hired and working in a work study position as of March 15th, 2020, to continue to receive bi-weekly payments in the event that remote work is not possible through the end of the Spring Semester. 

Completion of Work Study Pay Continuation - Students receiving Federal Work Study (FWS), Pepperdine Work Program (PWP), or Pepperdine Work Share (PWS) pay continuation due to COVID-19 received their final payment for the semester on May 1st, 2020 as stated in the FWS/PWP COVID-19 Pay Continuation Policy.

Students who are currently working remotely may continue to do so and will enter their hours in Kronos as usual. Please contact your Supervisor.
