Student Employment

Domestic students who are financially eligible may receive Federal College Work-Study (FCWS) or another work program as part of the financial aid award, which grants approval to work on campus to help offset college expenses. Student employment awards are need-based funds, so be sure to complete the FAFSA to be considered.

International students may receive a similar allotment called “Work Award.” Employment opportunities for international students in the U.S. are restricted by law.

HOW IT WORKS

Visit the Center for Global and Career Education for information about the job application process and job openings.

Domestic students

The typical campus job is based on 10 hours a week, at the current campus wage, for a full academic year. Students may earn up to that dollar amount. Although most campus jobs are reserved for FCWS students, a limited number of positions are available for those without work-study status. Sometimes these students find positions as teaching assistants, tutors or certified lifeguards. Students hired for a position on campus must complete state and federal paperwork with Student Payroll in the Office of Human Resources, found on the lower level of Carpenter Hall.

International students

Students who receive a work award as part of their financial aid package may work a limited number of hours on campus only. Students hired for a position on campus must complete state and federal paperwork with Student Payroll in Human Resources, found on the lower level of Carpenter Hall.
