The current student employment wage is the State of Michigan minimum wage. The hourly wage may be higher if a specific skill set is needed for a particular position. In this case, the higher wage is for the position and not the student if the student accepts a different position. Students will receive a pay check bi-weekly (pay dates can be found at the link provided) that can be picked up in the Cashier's office on campus or mailed to a specified address. Students may also choose to have pay checks directly deposited (9kB) to their bank account by following the link provided. Wages received by student employees are subject to federal and state income tax withholdings. Social Security and Medicare are not withheld for students while they are enrolled at least half time and are regularly attending classes towards completion of a degree.
