All Penn Students must be paid through Workday and every student hired must be onboarded, assigned a position, and paid through this online system.  No student is allowed to work before they have been officially assigned a position in Workday.  To be assigned a position:

  • Step 1 – Reach out to your Financial Coordinator tell them what position you’ve been hired for and for what group.
  • Step 2 – Your FC will respond with your Offer Letter and Information Form to be completed and signed.  If you are already in Workday you do not need to complete the Information Form, just the Offer Letter. These documents contain sensitive information so please give them back to your FC either in-person or via Secure Share.
  • Step 3 – Once your forms have been received and reviewed your position will be created and you will be assigned a position ID#.  Your FC will send you your position ID# which is specific to you and needed when you are ready to submit timesheets.
  • Step 4 – If you are not yet in Workday, after you have been assigned a position you will be able to complete the onboarding process by making an appointment with the Workday Solution Center.  Before you start working, you will need to complete federally required documentation in person at Onboard@Penn.
