  • On-Campus Employment Requirements
    • Must be enrolled in 6 degree seeking credit hours
    • Must maintain a “student” status throughout the school year
    • Must abide by University GPA requirements
  • Federal Work Study
  • Through the Federal Work Study program, you can secure an on-campus job to help pay for your educational expenses (including tuition) and give you valuable work experience.

    Federal Work Study is awarded through the Financial Aid Office based on financial need. Financial need is determined by the information you or your family supplies on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

    Priority is given to those who file their FASFA by December 1st. Federal Work Study is a grant based program; thus, when all money has been awarded, no more funds are available for the year.

    As a Federal Work Study student employee you will be paid for the hours you work, not to exceed the full amount of your award for the school year.

    Check Handshake daily for new opportunities.

  • Non-FWS
  • You do not need a work-study award to work on campus. Hourly positions are available for students, in various departments. Hourly student employees are paid for the hours they work and there is no cap on the maximum amount they can earn in a semester.
