Student Payroll Office


Student employment at Swarthmore College is overseen by two offices: the Student Employment Office and the Student Payroll Office. Working on campus can be an invaluable learning opportunity for students, and the Student Payroll Office offers resources to help support the student employment process. The Student Payroll Office is under the supervision of the Office of Human Resources.

Student Employment Office (SEO)

Have questions about finding and applying to jobs on campus? Visit the Student Employment Office Website.

The Student Employment Office (SEO) helps to connect the more than 1,200 students who work while at Swarthmore with on-campus employment opportunities. SEO does not directly place students in jobs, but rather help them identify on-campus job opportunities that are the right fit for their skills, interests, and availability. We also work with on-campus employers to help them advertise open positions to students, and welcome them to contact SEO if they need assistance in filling a student job.
