Student Employment

Student Employment is a great way to gain valuable work experience, build your resume, and earn money for your educational expenses! Students attending Wayland Baptist University are eligible to work up to 20 hours per week and earn $7.25 per hour. You may see up to $2,000 of Federal Work-Study eligibility on your Financial Aid Notification. Be sure to share this with hiring departments! 

Steps to Employment

  1. Check for available positions in any department you are interested in. 
  2. Complete a Student Employment Application to share with the hiring department. 
  3. Schedule an interview with the supervisor of the hiring department (if necessary). 
  4. Complete the employment paperwork in the Office of Financial Aid. 
  5. Start working!

Time Sheets 

Time sheets are due on the 15th and last day of each month. Your supervisor will have access to a time sheet for you to complete. Once you have completed the time sheet, you will return it to your supervisor for review and approval. After your supervisor has reviewed, signed, and submitted your time sheet to the Office of Financial Aid, we will process it on payroll! 


Student employees are paid twice a month, on the 15th and last day of the month. You are able to pick up a check in the Business Office or receive a direct deposit to your personal banking account. While direct deposit is not required, we encourage you to choose this option as it is a quick and easy way to receive your earnings!
