Student Employment

Working on campus provides a way to concentrate on your studies while earning money to pay for your educational expenses. If you are employed on campus, your employing department will work with you to accommodate your class schedule, providing you with the flexibility needed to be a successful college student. Some campus jobs may be able to provide work experience related to your intended career field.

There are two types of student employment and each has its own application process. In order to determine which type you may be eligible for, you’ll need to apply for financial aid. If you are eligible for work-study, this will be indicated on your award letter.

  • Federal Work-Study

    • Accept Work Study on Award Letter
    • Complete the Student Employment Application Form and return to Business Office
    • Contact campus department
    • Meet with Student Affairs representative for authorization
  • Regular Student Employment

Your application will be available for review by all campus departments employing students. You can also directly contact the department or departments where you are interested in working (see contact information below).

Hours Worked

Generally students work 5- 20 hours per week. The number of hours will vary according to the department’s needs and the student’s availability.

  • First year students = $8.75 per hour
