On-Campus Employment

On-Campus Employment

On-campus employment is defined as physically on the campus of NC State University and paid through the NC State University Payroll office. This excludes private companies on Centennial campus, private tutoring, or other services provided to students or faculty even if the activity takes place on campus. 

There are many departments on campus that hire students. The most productive method of finding an on-campus job is to go to the different departments and simply ask if they have any student positions open. 

Once hired, international students must make an appointment with the International Employment & Taxation to complete a tax assessment. A tax assessment is a requirement of your employment and must be completed prior to you receiving your first paycheck.

In order to accept salary or wage payment from U.S.-based source, it is necessary to obtain a Social Security Number
