Students who want to work at U-M or with a university-approved off-campus employer must first complete the online Student Employment Application on Wolverine Access. Select "Student Employment Application" from the Self-Service menu. For answers to questions about the Student Employment Application, contact U-M Human Resources.
After completing the application, check out the U-M Student Employment Office's job search website to find jobs that interest you. You can conduct searches for Work-Study as well as non-Work-Study positions, view listings, and apply for jobs online. Special search tools enable you to view jobs by type. For example, the most recently posted jobs or jobs that have a community service component.
Once you have been offered a job, you must complete the following forms to be officially hired and to get paid. For more information on how to complete these forms online, see the Human Resources website:
- Direct Deposit Authorization Form: Direct Deposit is the university's recommended method of delivering your paycheck. Your paycheck is deposited directly into your bank account and you can access your pay stub from any computer using Wolverine Access > Student Business. Visit the U-M Finance site for instructions on completing Direct Deposit.
- W-4 (Federal and Michigan Tax Withholding): Upon hire, the university assumes a Federal and Michigan tax filing status of "single with no exemptions." If your filing or exemption status is different from this, please update the information in Wolverine Access > Student Business. Look for the Federal and Michigan W-4 links.
- Federal Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form: You must present an original document or documents that establish your identity and employment eligibility. Please review the back side of the I-9 form for all acceptable documents. Find the form and information here.
If you have a Work-Study job, update your address and direct deposit information regularly to make sure you get paid on time.
