Student Jobs

Jobs classified as “On-Campus (Wage)” are available to any and all students. These jobs vary in salary, but most pay minimum wage. These jobs are located on campus, usually in departments, and you are limited to working 20 hours per week.  Jobs located on campus are very desirable for students because of the convenience of location, and general flexibility.

Jobs classified as “Part-Time/Off Campus” are available to any and all students. These jobs are located off campus and also vary in salary, beginning at minimum wage. The benefits of working off campus are a higher salary, and more working hours (you are not limited to 20 hours per week). There are a tremendous amount of employment opportunities in the community, everything from babysitting to clerical work and manual labor to food service. 

Student Employment also offers “Odd Job” opportunities. These jobs are short-term and usually only require a few hours to complete.

Work-study is a federally funded program that provides universities with money for students who qualify based on financial need. This program allows students to gain valuable work experience, on campus, that helps fund their education while working towards their degree.

Five Steps to Work-Study

2. Students will receive a letter that states how much assistance they have been awarded. Students can also check award status in SOAR.
