Student employees are a valuable asset to the Bluffton community. Through the Learn & Earn program students may gain work experience in their area of academic study, identify career objectives, gain transferable skills that can be useful in a variety of careers and earn a paycheck.

Campus jobs open to all students

Any traditional undergraduate student attending Bluffton University is eligible to work in the Learn & Earn program. Eligibility for a campus job is included in most financial aid awards, however this does not guarantee a campus position. 

Students may apply for open campus emplyment positions by viewing available positions through their MyBluffton account under the Student tab. The link to Learn & Earn E-Hire is located in the left margin. Open positions can be found through the search function under the Employment Position Application link.

Student jobs range from 2 to 10 hours per week depending on the type of job. Students are paid according to their academic status. First-year students earn minimum wage. Paychecks are issued on the 15th of each month for time worked the previous month. Wages are direct deposited into a personal bank account. Receiving a printed check is an option.

There are forms that must be completed before a student will be permitted to work. These forms must be completed and returned along with appropriate, acceptable identification, to the business office receptionist located in the lower level of College Hall.
