More than 800 students pursue student jobs each year. Many receive financial aid awards through Federal Work Study Barnard College Jobs, which allow students to receive funding through their work. Beyond Barnard administrates all paperwork and processes for applications to jobs, collaborates with cross-campus supervisors to facilitate the posting of positions.
Student Jobs at Barnard
BarnardWorks is the online platform through which all part-time student employment job opportunities are posted. This includes on-campus jobs, off-campus jobs, community service jobs, and bartending and babysitting jobs. BarnardWorks is comprised of JobX and TimesheetX. JobX is the online system that houses all part-time student jobs managed through Barnard College, and TimesheetX is the system through which all timesheets and payroll for all Barnard College student employees is managed.
Employers can post student employment opportunties on JobX and review applications online. Once a decision is made, they can then hire the right candidate and send the hire seamlessly to TimesheetX. Students can search for opportunities, apply for multiple jobs with one application, and set up JobMail notifications on JobX.
Students can log their work hours on TimesheetX allowing their employer to review and approve their timesheets. Both students and employers can look up past timesheets as well as the student's current award balance.
If you are an international student using BarnardWorks for the first time, please fill out this form and we will create an account for you and email you the information.
Drop-in hours to consult about paperwork are from 12-1PM every day at Beyond Barnard (Elliott Hall, Second Floor). Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if no day between the hours of 12-1PM works for you.
There are 3 forms that are necessary for students to complete in order to start employment with Barnard: the I-9, the W-4, and the WTPA forms. These forms should be completed at home and then emailed or dropped off to Beyond Barnard. See below for the directions:
- Download the forms you need to complete or update.
- Fill them out and save to your computer.
- Sign them! A typed signature is not allowed. You can print, sign, and either take a picture or scan your form if you'd like to submit it via email.
The I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification form) only needs to be completed the first time a student works at Barnard through Beyond Barnard.
If you are a first time employee of Barnard College you need to bring acceptable ID to fill out your I-9. You are not allowed to work until you have completed your employment forms, so if you are unable to stop in during Drop-In Hours, please call (212) 853-0770 to make an appointment.
Students must complete a W-4 (Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate form) the first time they are employed on Barnard's campus. If they claim exempt, they must update their W-4 every calendar year. If you are a Nonresident Alien, please review these supplemental instructions to assist you in completing your W-4.
Direct Deposit Form
If you'd like to receive your paycheck easily and immediately, you can opt to be paid via direct deposit. Your paycheck will be automatically deposited directly into a checking/savings account or onto a ready-to-use debit card. Fill out the form here, and then print it and drop it off at our office with any required attachments.
If you are a Columbia University student employed by Barnard College, or if you are an international student (both F-1 and J-1 visas), there are additional forms that may be required.
If you are a student at Columbia University but have been hired by an employer at Barnard College, you must fill out a Columbia Hire Request Form.
Visiting international students on J-1 visas are eligible to work as a student employee in an on-campus job for up to 15 hours (either Barnard and/or Columbia campuses), as long as they are in good academic standing. Students may be eligible to work off-campus through "Academic Training", a benefit of the J-1 visa, but they must first discuss this with the International Student Services Office in Milbank 10.
If you are an international student on an F-1 or J-1 visa, you will need to fill out a Social Security Verification Form. Additionally, if you have not previously logged on to BarnardWorks, you should fill out this form so we can create an account for you.
Statement of Confidentiality
Barnard College Employers strongly encouraged to require their student employees to sign Statements of Confidentiality. The Barnard approved Statement of Confidentiality form found here has been approved by the Beyond Barnard office and Barnard General Counsel, and protects the College from breaches in confidentiality regarding technology, intellectual property and the privacy and rights of students, staff and faculty.
Paid Family Leave Waiver
New York State Paid Family Leave (PFL) went into effect on January 1, 2018. PFL is a state-mandated program that provides employees with partially paid, job-protected leave in certain circumstances. The New York PFL benefit is funded through minimal deductions from employee paychecks. By statute, the weekly contribution rate is 0.126% of an employee’s weekly wage. This maximum contribution is $1.65 per week per employee.
You may be eligible to waive the PFL benefit and the payroll deductions. If your regular schedule is less than 26 consecutive weeks (6 months) or 175 days in a period of 52 consecutive weeks, you can simply complete the PFL-Waiver Form. If you wish to waive PFL benefit, please print and complete the PFL-Waiver Form, and email the form to email@example.com.
