Where Do I Submit my On-Campus Employment Paperwork?
After completing the required paperwork in the Office of Human Resources, Administration Building, 1st floor, you can submit all the paperwork in-person to the Student Financial Services Office, located on the 4th floor of the Administration Building.
What Happens When I Submit my Paperwork?
Once a student has submitted all the required paperwork, we enter the pertinent information for that job into the payroll system. This also creates an electronic time sheet, which both a student and his or her supervisor must complete and approve every two weeks in order to get paid.
When Will Student Financial Services Contact Me?
Our office is also responsible for a number of compliance items and works closely with the Career Center, International Student and Scholar Office and Office of Human Resources to assist departments and students with federal, state and TU hiring policies and procedures. If we are either missing information to process your job and/or find there may be a compliance issue, either our office or the Payroll Office may contact you.
Salary or wage payments made to US Citizens, Permanent Resident Aliens, resident aliens for tax purposes and nonresident aliens are subject to FICA/Medicare tax unless one of the following exemptions applies.
The student exemption applies to those who work for the institution at which he/she is enrolled and regularly attends classes.
This rule applies only during times when a student is taking a minimum of 6 credit hours. Towson University applies the NRA exemption first. In the year in which an individual becomes a resident alien for tax purposes, the University begins withholding FICA and Medicare on January 1st unless the student exemption applies. If you believe FICA/Medicare has been withheld in error, you should contact the Payroll Office to request a refund.
