Appointing a Student Assistant to a Concurrent Job

This guide goes over the process of hiring a student assistant into your department when that student is concurrently employed by another department on campus.

CSU Student Hire is only used if you are appointing a student that is new to your department but already has another ongoing stateside position in another campus department.

To hire a new student assistant that is brand new (i.e. no other active stateside employment on campus), you must go through the CHRS Recruiting hiring process. Refer to the Student Recruitment Guides on HRDI's Recruiting user guides page for more information.

Before entering anything into CSU Student Hire, make sure that you've completed all the steps listed in the Before Entering an Appointment or Pay Change in CSU Student Processes checklist.

1. Verify that the student has an active stateside job.

To confirm that a student has a current stateside work appointment, contact Student Employment to request information about the student's work history.

2. Log in to CHRS and access CSU Student Processes under Workforce Administration in the NavBar Menu.

3. Select CSU Student Hire.

You can click the magnifying glass icons to look up a user's CS Emplid (CWID).

If you select Search for Elig Students in the Eligible Students drop-down menu, the system will filter out students that do not meet the conditions for employment (e.g. not enrolled, not in good academic standing, etc.) Select Search for All Students to view all student records matching the search criteria that you enter.
