Student Employment Forms
Policies and Procedures
State and federal regulations require certain documents and procedures be followed in order to be authorized for work.
Prior to the first day of employment, students must submit the following forms to the Human Resources Office. Students new to Beloit will have an opportunity during New Student Days to complete these items.
If you are under 18 years of age, you must obtain a work permit from the State of Wisconsin. Information to obtain a work permit can be found here.

Beloit College Student Authorization for Direct Deposit
All students are encouraged to sign up for direct deposit. This allows Beloit College to electronically deposit all Payroll, Financial Aid, and Accounts Payable payments directly into your existing bank or credit union account. Click here for the direct deposit form and instructions.
To verify the ownership and accuracy of your bank account information, you must provide a document with the name of your bank, your bank’s routing number, your account number, and your name printed on it. Handwritten documents are not acceptable. Documents that will satisfy this requirement:
- Voided Check – a blank check with the word “VOID” written across it.
- Paper account owner ID card containing your account number. Your bank most likely issued this when you opened your account. This is not the same as your debit or ATM card.
- A document from your bank that contains all the required information. You should be able to obtain this from their customer service desk.
Are There Any Other Forms I Need?
- Student Employment Authorization Card
When all of your employment and financial aid paperwork is verified and approved, you will be issued a yellow Employment Authorization Card. You may not begin working until you receive this card.
- Student Employment Online Time Card
When you have been approved to begin working, you will be able to access your online time card through The Portal, where you can record the hours that you work. At the end of each month, verify your hours and your supervisor will then approve the time card for submission and payment.
- Student Payroll Schedule
Student payday is typically the 15th of each month for work performed in the previous month. Payroll sends direct deposit notification forms to campus mailboxes on the morning of each payday. Click here for this year’s student payroll schedule.
