All Career Center services, resources, and programs are designed to create meaningful opportunities for students and alumni, and assist in the transition from college to work or graduate school.

Student Employment

The UNC Asheville Payroll Department works with the Career Center to assist students in finding both federal work study and on-campus jobs. The Career Center posts all on-campus jobs on RockyLink. The Payroll department oversees an on-line time sheet reporting system and processes direct deposit pays for all on-campus student employment (this includes federal work study). Required employment contracts as well as federal and state tax paperwork are also coordinated through the Student Payroll Service Center.

The Student Payroll Service Center is here to assist and answer your questions. You can visit us on the first floor of Phillips Hall or contact us at 828.250.2352.
