Update: January 1st, 2021, Student Employment will only be accepting authorizations via the e-Hire tool  located within Mainestreet. The only exceptions to paper authorizations are when a department is hiring a student employee without a Mainestreet ID, i.e. Non-UMaine & Highschool Student. 

If your department is hiring a student employee without a Mainestreet ID, please reach out to us at student.employ@maine.edu or by calling us at 207.581.1349.
