Hiring Process & Paperwork

New! Before the student’s start date, managers need to submit a new hire request through the OSE Hiring Center in Campus Connect. Please note: this is an additional platform to BlueSky.

Navigation Instructions:

  • Login into Campus Connect
  • Then follow this path: Campus Connect > DePaul Reports and Interfaces > Hiring Center > Student New Hires.
Submitting the Hiring Request
  • Once in the OSE Hiring Center, click “Create New Request" and search for the student you would like to hire
  • Once the request is complete, the manager clicks the “Submit to OSE" button at the bottom of the request
  • For a step-by-step walk-through of entering the request, view the Hiring - Student Employees video
For instructions on how to hire a student within the OSE Hiring Center, you can also review the OSE Hiring Center Instructional Guide.

Completing Hiring Paperwork
  • If your student is already an active on-campus employee, no further paperwork is needed after submitting the new hire request in OSE Hiring Center. Managers will receive an email once processed and can also check the OSE Hiring Center for the status of their hire request.

  • If your student needs to complete hiring paperwork, you and the student will get an email notification. This paperwork needs to be complete before they begin working. Both you and the student employee will receive an email confirmation from OSE that their paperwork has been processed.

  • Students can find all forms and information on hiring paperwork here.

Changes to the Hiring Process

  • Digital paperwork is going away: The USCIS policy allowing for digitally completed I-9s and remote verification of identification will expire soon. USCIS requires all employers to ensure physical, in-person inspection of all identification documents for completion of the Form I-9.
  • In-person paperwork resumes in LPC August 9: To maintain compliance with federally mandated hiring procedures, OSE will resume in-person paperwork at our Lincoln Park location (Schmitt Academic Center Ste 192) starting August 9th, 2021 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm. 
  • As of August 16th, both the Loop and Lincoln Park OSE offices will be open from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm.
As a reminder, students cannot begin working until all paperwork processes are complete, including the in-person verification of their IDs for the I-9.  

No Remote Hiring After August 9
Due to these upcoming changes, we ask that you refrain from completing any remote hiring for students with start dates on or after August 9th, as these students will need to re-verify their documents in September. Instead, please submit August and September start date requests starting the week of August 9th when students will be able to visit campus and complete their in-person paperwork.
