Step 1:

Job Descriptions

Every student position on campus is required to have a job description (JD), which must be approved by Financial Aid before a student is hired. Upon reviewing a job description, the Office of Financial Aid will assign a JD number for proper entry into WorkDay during the hiring process. Approved JDs may be found on the "K Drive" under Workstudy. You may select to review job descriptions by supervisor name or by navigating into the academic year to review the "TABLE all JDs" or the current years "Job Description Template". You will be able to search through the table of all JDs to find what your job description number is for each level. If you need to create a new job description, please use the template on the K Drive.


Please speak to your budget manager to get your total budget for both your work-study and part-time budget lines. If you are unsure who that is, please contact Finance, and they can let you know.  All budgets for FY18 were set by Cabinet to year-end actuals of FY17.

Workday Hiring Instructions


  1. What does it means when you can't find a student under existing pre-hires?  The student has already been hired, or is in the process of being hired. You will want to search for the student in the search bar in upper left-hand corner to verify.
  2. What if I can't find the student in the search box? This likely means the student is in the process of being hired. Please contact the People Center to verify or check back then next day.
