Finding On-Campus Employment

You must follow the process below before you will receive a paycheck.

Step 1:  Contact the Center for Career and Professional Development to locate available jobs.  All student employment is handled through the Center for Career and Professional Development .  You may find more information at their web site at http://www.careers.tcu.edu.

Step 2: Take your Social Security card, certified birth certificate, or passport to the Center for Career and Professional Development in person and complete an I-9 form. You must provide the original document for completion of the I-9. You will also need to take an unexpired picture ID with you for completion of the I-9.

Step 3: You also need a copy of your Social Security card for payroll purposes when you go to the Center for Career and Professional Development. Even if you use your passport or birth certificate for completion of the I-9, you still need to provide a copy of your Social Security card for payroll.

Step 4: Your hiring department will complete an Electronic Personnel Action Form (ePAF) and route it electronically to Human Resources for processing.

Step 5: If you are a federal work study student, your hiring Electronic Personnel Action Form (ePAF) will be electronically routed to Financial Aid for review.  Once approved by Financial Aid, your hiring Electronic Personnel Action Form (ePAF) will be electronically routed to Human Resources for processing.

Step 6:  You will receive an email from Human Resources that your hiring Electronic Personnel Action Form (ePAF) has been processed and your job is active in the Human Resources system.

Step 7: Enroll in direct deposit available through my.tcu.edu ==> Employee Self Service. Direct Deposit is mandatory at TCU. * It normally takes two pay periods before your paychecks will be automatically deposited into your banking account. Paper paychecks will be issued during these two pay periods only.

Step 8: Paydays are every other Friday.  To generate a paycheck, you must submit a paysheet (available at http://hr.tcu.edu/forms-library/payroll-forms/) to your supervisor.  Your supervisor will sign and submit this form for payment.  To verify that you have a paycheck ready for pick up by going to my.tcu.edu and click on Employee Center ==>On-Line Paycheck. If a paycheck shows to have been issued and this is your first or second paycheck, go to Human Resources to pick up your paycheck.  If you are receiving Title IV funds and did not elect Direct Deposit, go to Human Resources to pick up your paycheck.

Step 9: Paychecks are available on pay day after 1:00 pm in Human Resources located at 3100 West Berry Street, Fort Worth, Texas 76133. You may also reach Human Resources by calling 817-257-7790.

*Federal regulations prohibit requiring students to receive Title IV funds via Direct Deposit, however it is strongly suggested for all students to utilize direct deposit if they are paid through Payroll.
