*** For those students who are paid on a Weekly basis and are working on the Medford Campus, pay checks must be picked up in person at the front desk of the Student Service Center located on the 7th floor of Dowling Hall, 419 Boston Avenue, daily from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Students picking up their checks must present a valid photo ID. Students may not pick up checks for other students except in cases of emergency, in which case the Student Employment Office (SEO) must be notified in advance and the situation approved by the Manager of Student Employment. The student picking up the check or pay stub must present a signed note, which authorizes him/her to receive the check, along with a photo ID. If students fail to pick up their checks after 30 days the checks are sent to the SEO. The Student Employment Manager e-mails the students to inform them that their check will be returned to Tufts Support Services, 62R Talbot Avenue.
