Student Employment and Payroll

Charmaine Giles '10 at Reunion

Student employment at Swarthmore College is overseen by the Student Employment Office and the Student Payroll Office.


**Email is the preferred method of contact for either office from June -August 2017.

Student Employment Office (SEO)

The Student Employment Office (SEO) helps to connect the more than 1,200 students who work while at Swarthmore with on-campus employment opportunities. Services include helping students to identify on-campus job opportunities and helping on-campus employers advertise positions to students. Since students best know their interest, skills, and schedule, the SEO does not place students in job positions, but is a place to bring your campus job questions.

Another function of the Student Employment Office is to link employers with potential student employees. On-campus employers can contact the Student Employment Office if they need assistance in filling a student job. 

Currently our office, Parrish basement LL #28 is unavailable so the Student Employment Office is available by email. 


The Student Payroll Office (SPO)

The Student Payroll Office (SPO) collects all of the paperwork that is required for a student to work on campus. The office also manages online timesheet collection and paycheck processing.  All questions pertaining to your required Federal paperwork, timesheet, or payment should be directed to the Student Payroll Office.
