Annual Audit Information

Annual Student Employment Audit Information

We complete annual audits in order to support each department in maintaining accurate and complete files.  We do this in preparation for any potential audits from other internal and external organizations.  The goal is to show departments what is missing so that each department can then work to correct/update files.  Please note that we will not change audit results if files are updated after the audit is completed.  During the annual audit, the Office of Student Employment needs to have access to all files for the previous academic year (fall, spring, and summer).  You may use the checklists below in each personnel file to assure the accuracy of your records.  

Below are checklists for current and recent audit years, as well as resources explaining how audits are scored and results are sent.  If you have questions regarding Student Employment Audits, please contact us at (719) 255-3464 or at
