Welcome to the home page for the UVF CO-OP (On-Campus Jobs) Program
The University supports the employment of current students, recognizing the reciprocal benefits of their work. Employment of students provides them the opportunity to gain valuable work experience and assists them with the financing of their education. Our undergraduate employees are a valuable resource, helping the departments to maintain a student focus and perspective. Providing on-campus job opportunities for our students is consistent with our philosophy on preparing individuals for a life of service and leadership in the church and world.
Every student position has merit, even if it is not directly related to a field of study. These roles help our students gain a better understanding of the dynamics of the working environment, and foster the development of many essential job skills. The program provides each University department with the opportunity to utilize the unique skills and talents of UVF students. Students are an integral part of making the departments run smoothly, while they gain abilities that will help them in future employment.

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 are 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 are posted on www.my.valleyforge.edu with the contact information of the hiring supervisor.
* 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. The bank information must include the bank's routing number and the individual account number.
* Students are permitted to work 15 hours a week. If a student wants to work more that 15 hours a week, they need to complete a request form that is available in the CO-OP Office in the Harrup Administration building. Students are not permitted to work more than 25 hours a week. Students are also permitted to work more than one job, with approval from the CO-OP Office.
* Returning student workers will only need to pick up the Student Employment Verification Form from their hiring supervisor and submit it to CO-OP Office. They will also need to submit their bank account information for the direct deposit.
