Student Workers

Student employees are an integral part of the TCNJ workforce. Students are paid biweekly two weeks after the end of the pay period. For information related to pay schedules, taxes, time sheets and other related information, please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

Time-Card-Student (Oracle Cloud Time and Labor)

FICA and Medicare Tax Withholding for Student Employees 

The IRS provides an exemption from Social Security and Medicare taxes for students employed at TCNJ who are enrolled at least half-time at the undergraduate or graduate level.  This exemption does not apply to an otherwise eligible student not enrolled in classes during summer or breaks of more than five weeks.  Therefore, students not enrolled in classes at the College during the summer but employed on campus will have Social Security (6.2%) and Medicare (1.45%) taxes withheld  from their summer paychecks.

We have transitioned to Oracle Cloud. All changes to direct deposit or tax withholding information must be submitted through the Cloud. Please view the ‘Self-Service’ tab for instructions.
