Should the undesired behavior persist, the supervisor must notify both the student and the Student Assistant Program of the decision to cancel or fire and complete a termination form.

Immediate dismissal is warranted for other reasons such as abuse of confidentiality, theft, time reporting falsification or other serious Conduct Code infractions. A student may request a meeting with the Student Assistant Program Coordinator if he or she feels that the dismissal is unjust. The Coordinator will meet with both parties and make a decision which will be final. Students found to be justifiably dismissed “for cause” will not be referred to another unit for the remainder of the semester.  Future employment at Ramapo College will be determined on a case by case basis dependent upon previous history.

Resignation From a Position

  1. When a position is accepted, the student makes a semester-long commitment to the hiring unit and supervisor who then depends upon the student to perform the assignment during the hours and periods mutually agreed upon. Therefore, resignation from a position should only occur for a legitimate reason such as the need for more study time or an unresolvable conflict. The problem must be discussed with the Student Assistant Program Coordinator before resignation.
  2. Should the resignation request be approved, two weeks notice is required as it would be for any professional position. The Employment Form (Termination section) is to be sent from the unit to the Student Assistant Program Office.
  3. Failure to follow the resignation procedures may result in the student not being eligible for placement that semester.

What employment programs are available?

There are two major student employment programs with different requirements:

a. Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a need-based financial aid award available to United States citizens and permanent resident aliens. Students apply and, if eligible, are awarded work-study that is based on individual financial need. FWS students may then earn up to the award specified by the Financial Aid Office during the academic year.

b. The Student Assistant Program is funded as part of the College’s operating budget and is based on institutional guidelines. Students who are United States citizens, permanent resident aliens or on F-1 visas are eligible for this type of employment.

Student aides are hired through program or project-based awards. These positions are generally ability-dependent (skilled), requiring a “fit” between position requirements and student abilities. Ability may refer to specialized knowledge, assignment familiarity, effective communication/interpersonal skills or willingness to comply with specific project and supervisory requirements.

 

How do I apply for student employment?

All students should search open positions through the Cahill Center job bank on Archway and apply to the hiring units.

Students who feel they might be eligible for Federal Work-Study should file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the March 1st deadline. They will be notified by the Financial Aid Office if awarded Federal Work-Study.

 

How do I get hired?

There are several steps that must be followed to obtain an on-campus position. The Student Assistant Program staff will guide students through the required procedures.

The student must:

  1. Search open positions on The Archway.
  2. If hired by unit, visit the Student Assistant Program in the Cahill Center, Room C209.
  3. If never been employed by the College, present required documentation– Social Security Card, student ID or a photo driver’s license, completed W-4 and I-9 forms
  4. Receive necessary employment form and agreement
  5. Have forms completed by hiring supervisor
  6. Return forms to Student Assistant Program office

 

How will I know what my responsibilities are?

Job requirements and responsibilities are listed with each job posting on The Archway.   In addition, the Student Assistant Supervisor in each unit is asked to thoroughly describe work responsibilities to the student during the interview process before offering the job to the student applicant.

 

Can I earn academic credits for my on-campus work experience?

If a student’s position is of a pre-professional level, related to his/her academic studies or career goals and at least fifteen hours a week for the full semester, the student may investigate whether Cooperative Education/ Internship credits may be earned. For more information, Contact a Career Advisor in the Cahill Center.

 

May I change jobs if I don’t like mine after a few weeks?

No. When a position is accepted, the student makes a commitment to the hiring unit and supervisor for a full semester. At the end of the semester, a student who wishes to change jobs may check The Archway to see if other positions are available on campus.

 

How many hours may I work each week?

The maximum weekly work limit is fifteen (15) hours when classes are in session; twenty-nine (29) during breaks and vacations. Students in units with twenty-four (24) hour coverage (Residence Life, Public Safety) or extensive weekend schedules (Athletics, Berrie Center , Library, Student Center ) may work twenty (20) hours weekly. Students holding two (2) positions (tutoring positions in Center for Reading and Writing and TAS, ITS lab assistant positions and Berrie Center/Contemporary Arts combined positions) may also work a total of twenty (20) hours per week maximum.  Students may not work any more than six (6) hours consecutively without taking an unpaid break of at least 30 minutes (1/2 hour).

What happens during vacation?

During breaks, vacations and summer, twenty-nine (29) hours per week are the maximum hours which a student can work. These hours are contingent upon the provision for student supervision by the unit and adequate unit student aid allocations.

How much will I be paid per hour?

Effective July 1,2014, a new 3-level pay scale for students will go into effect.  The Cahill Center, under the guidance of a newly formed SAP Advisory Committee, will assign positions to the appropriate ranges based on job descriptions provided by the student assistants’ supervisors.  This new process will help ensure consistency across with regard to student positions and pay rates.

Within the new scale, pay raises will be based on years of service, with a $.25 for each year a student returns to his/her position, rewarding student loyalty and experience.  Included in with the new scale is a ‘grandfather’ clause that would allow students currently earning wages above the new scale the higher pay rate until they graduate from the College.

student-assistant-pay-scale-jan-1-2017

How much can I earn of my FWS award?

Federal Work-Study students may earn up to the amount of their FWS award; however, they are not guaranteed that the full amount of their award will be used. This will depend upon the assigned hours scheduled with their supervisor. For student aides, hours to be worked are determined by the student supervisor and their unit allocations.

 

How do I keep track of my FWS hours?

FWS students are expected to maintain records of total hours worked and total earnings. The student supervisor will also be monitoring these earnings. The supervisor will be notified when their student employee is within $300 of their total Federal Work-Study award and the supervisor is required to notify the student when the total is nearing exhaustion.

 

How do I report the hours that I work?

Students follow unit sign-in and sign-out procedures and record hours worked on College’s web-based on-line time reporting system.  If the alternate form of time reporting is submitted for three (3) consecutive pay periods, student could face termination.

 

What taxes will be deducted from my paycheck?

The College is required by law to withhold federal and state income taxes if so dictated by the student’s W-4 form. Students are exempt from Social Security taxes (FICA) and Medicare taxes (MQFE) if they are enrolled at least part time (6 or more credits) during the academic semester. This exemption does not apply to students not enrolled in classes during the summer.

 

When will I get paid?

It generally takes four weeks for students assuming new positions to be paid–two weeks for students to work and submit time and two weeks for payroll preparation. After this period, students will be paid every two weeks as indicated in the published schedule if time worked is submitted properly according to the published schedule. Direct Deposit at the College is mandatory for all student employees, as per NJ State Law.

Are there opportunities for FWS students at off-campus placements?

Yes. Federal Work-Study recipients who can provide their own transportation are invited to explore off-campus placements at community service agencies.
