Learn & Earn

Returning student job application

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. To be considered for campus employment, students must submit a Learn & Earn application.

Student jobs range from 2 to 10 hours per week depending on the type of job.  First-year students earn minimum wage. Returning students hourly rates are based upon the earned academic status at the start of the academic year. Paychecks are issued on the 15th of each month for time worked the previous month. Direct deposit into a personal bank account is an option. Student worker training sessions are offered each semester by the campus jobs office and the Center for Career and Vocation. Student workers are encouraged to attend and are paid for a one hour session. Topics presented have included teamwork, customer service, skill building, diversity, credit reports, identity theft, budgeting/money flow and educational/career choices. 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.
