Student Supervisor Instructions

Supervisor Requirements For On-Campus Student Employment


All supervisors must complete this form and submit it to payroll regardless of whether or not they have worked for another on campus department.  If the form is not submitted to Payroll the student will not have a time sheet within Webster to record their hours worked. Instructions will be sent via email to the supervisor and student upon submission.

BEGINNING WORK. New student employees will need to visit payroll office (Inlow 205) to complete additional paperwork prior to the first day of work. Please bring the following original documents: Social Security card, Driver’s license or passport, and a voided check for direct deposit.

Timely submission of the forms will enable our office to make certain the proper paperwork is completed within 3 business days as required by Federal law and will ensure the student can get paid for the work they do for your department.  Students that do not complete the required paperwork for the Employment Eligibility Verification are not authorized to work as EOU employees.


Eastern’s policy is that students may work no more than 29 hours weekly year round.  International students may jeopardize their Visa status by working over 20 hours per week and students with work-study may jeopardize their work-study status. For more information, please view the EOU Policy website for Policy/Procedure: Student employee policy.


Web Time Entry (WTE) is a web-based application that collects time and attendance information for EOU student employees in Webster. All EOU students are responsible for entering and submitting their hours worked every pay period. Supervisors are responsible for approving the hours worked and audit sick leave to ensure they aren’t claiming more sick leave than they have accrued. Once the supervisor has approved the hours, the employee’s hours are automatically loaded into payroll for payment. In order to comply with the Fair Labor and Standards Act, EOU student employees record their daily in and out times instead of the total hours worked in Webster.

Time sheets are due by 11:59 p.m. on the 16th of the month and must be submitted through WebsterIf the 16th falls on a Saturday or Sunday they need to be submitted Monday by 11:59 p.m.  If the 16th falls on a holiday, you need to submit the day before. If you are going to be gone when the time sheets are due to be submitted, please set up a proxy to prevent any delays on the employee receiving there pay check.

There is a time slot with five ins and outs for students that work split shifts it is important when the students have more than one job that the time of day they start and stop work needs to be entered.  Have the students record their time in 15 minute increments.   If the student works 5 minutes over a 15-minute increment, round down; if the student works 10 minutes, round up to 15 minutes.
