Referral Form Processing Information

  • The department hiring the student is responsible for initiating the Referral Form. Payroll prefers that all information (except signatures and dates) is typed by the department, especially the Pay Rate/Hour.
  • In order to process a student’s pay in a timely and accurate manner, all information on the Referral Form is used by and needed by Payroll; therefore, the entire Referral Form should be completed by the employer, then signed/dated by the student and the employer (2 signatures required)
  • The student should bring the Referral Form to Student Employment Programs for processing BEFORE the start date written on the referral form.
  • After processing the Referral, Student Employment Programs forwards the Referral Form to the Payroll Department.
  • A student will need a Referral Form for each different job the student has been hired for by a department.
  • After receipt of a Referral Form, Payroll creates a record for the student and the job listed on the Referral Form. This information has to update overnight before a student can clock in using Kronos.
