There are Many Benefits to Our Students that Work On-Campus

  • All co-op jobs offer students opportunities to follow Jesus and love Him.
  • Our students enjoy greater academic success.
  • Our students are more connected to the University.
  • They develop relationships with members of the University community who can help them with their spiritual growth.
  • They have supervisors who support their educational endeavors and coordinate work schedules with academic schedules.

 

New Guidelines for the UVF CO-OP On-Campus Program

  • Student employment at UVF refers to temporary, part-time, on-campus positions available to registered, degree-seeking students.
  • All jobs will be available to all students.
  • There will no longer be restricted and non-restricted jobs.
  • All students will receive a full paycheck.  All payroll is done through direct deposit, so all student employees will need to provide their bank account information.
  • If a student owes on his student account bill, he will be responsible for setting up a plan to make those payments.   

 

The Procedure for Getting a Job

  • All jobs will be posted on my.valleyforge.edu with the contact information of the hiring supervisor in August.
  • The student is responsible for contacting the supervisor to set up an interview.  The student is advised to bring the student application (available on this website) and references to the interview.  If the student is hired, the supervisor will sign and give them the Student Employment Verification Form.  The student will need to bring this form to the CO-OP Office in the Harrup Administration Building.  All new employees will need to bring their Social Security Card and a photo ID card and their bank account information.
  • Returning student workers will only need to pick up the Student Employment Verification Form from their hiring supervisor and submit it to Judy Walsh.  They will also need to submit their bank account information for the direct deposit.
