Student Employment

Gain valuable work experience—and help offset school expenses

Student workers at a 2019 eventMany students take advantage of part-time student employment opportunities to earn funds to cover personal expenses.

When listed on a financial aid notification, student employment represents the opportunity, not a requirement, to seek employment. The amount listed on a financial aid notification represents possible earnings. Actual earnings will depend on pay rate and the number of hours worked during the academic year. Students are paid directly according to the monthly pay schedule. Payments are not posted to a semester bill on the student account.

Employment is available through both the Federal Work-Study Program and campus employment. Students with Federal Work-Study eligibility may work either on campus or for a community service agency. Preference for on-campus positions will be given to students who qualify for Federal Work-Study, and some positions are only available to students who qualify for Federal Work-Study. You can contact the Office of Financial Aid to see if you qualify for Federal Work-Study.
