Students have all kinds of questions about how to prepare for life after college.

“How can I maximize my summer experience through internships?”
“What do I want to do after graduation?”
“Should I go to graduate school?”
Most undergraduate students are paid by the hour and must record and submit their hours weekly. You must be eligible for student employment in order to fill any of these positions.
Undergraduate students primarily work as course assistants or research assistants in CS. Payrates vary between $10-$15 per hour, depending on the position.
Getting on Payroll
Students must complete a federal I-9 form in Student Employment the first time they work at JHU and after every lapse in work that is at least one full semester long. This process must be completed before the student begins work in the department.
How to Submit Hours
Once hours have been verified through the department, paychecks will be available through student employment according to their scheduled paydates. See here for details, including setting up direct deposit.
Occasionally, students may feel overwhelmed by the rigors of education, especially if coupled with outside stresses like health and family concerns. Johns Hopkins offers a host of resources where you can ask for and receive help.
If you need someone to listen, you can talk to your advisor and Director of Undergraduate Studies Joanne Selinski. Sometimes, venting to someone may be all you need.
Other times, though, you may want to talk to someone who is trained to help people in distress. View these pages for information and hours:
