Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
The following flowchart will guide supervisors and new student employees through the onboarding process.
The best way to recruit a new student employee is through the MSU Denver job posting system. However, before a supervisor posts a job, it is important that they develop an internal job description for their office and assign an appropriate pay rate. The Federal Work-Study Guidelines indicate, “Employment must be governed by employment conditions, including pay, that are appropriate and reasonable according to the type of work performed, geographic region and employee proficiency.” It is recommended that employees start at Level 1 to allow for merit increases. If a supervisor decides to increase a student’s level, the student’s job description should increase in complexity and duties to justify a level change.
After a supervisor has a job description and determined the rate of pay they may post a job on the Student Employment website. (Pay rates indicated on a job posting cannot decrease once a student applies for a job.

NOTE: It is a violation of federal and state laws to allow student employees to begin work without completing employment paperwork (I-9, W-4, Worker’s Compensation Notification, etc.). Student employees fall under the same hiring practices as any new employees. To allow students to start working without completing this paperwork is not only a violation of legal hiring practices, but unfair to students because their pay may be delayed.
