Based on new federal guidelines released regarding COVID-19, SAU is announcing a positive change to student-worker pay.
Effective IMMEDIATELY, ALL STUDENT WORKERS CURRENTLY EMPLOYED BY SAU WILL BE PAID FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE SPRING SEMESTER WITHOUT REPORTING TO DUTIES.
- Student workers funded through federal work-study
- Student workers funded through regular pay
- Graduate Assistants
What does this mean?
Currently employed students will receive pay on regularly scheduled student payroll dates based on SCHEDULED work hours.
For example, if a student is scheduled to work in the MAC 10 hours a week, the student will receive a check based on 10 hours a week for each remaining pay-period this semester.
What if I withdraw?
Students who withdraw from SAU will not be paid for scheduled work hours effective the date of withdrawal.
How will this work?
Supervisors will submit student payroll forms on behalf of students. Students ARE NOT required to SIGN the form nor submit the form. Supervisors will receive the form and instructions in a separate email.
How will checks be distributed?
Checks will be mailed to the address on file. Please verify your address in mySAU. Please email change of address to firstname.lastname@example.org before Wednesday, March 18, 5:00 PM.
For international students without a domestic bank account, a wire request form is attached to this email and will be available online in the FAQ section of the coronavirus page.
What if I want to continue to work?
Contact your supervisor. Supervisors can determine the NEED for you to continue working, but the changes implemented to payroll applies to all student workers without exception.
