Working on Campus
Student employment assists students in obtaining jobs that help defray the cost of a college education and can provide students with career-related work. Supervisors typically consider your academic schedule in your work hours, and you can develop relationships with faculty and staff who care about your success.
Undergraduate students must be degree seeking, enrolled in a minimum of twelve (12) graded credit hours fall and spring semesters, and maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative grade-point average. Graduate students must be degree-seeking, enrolled in a minimum of nine (9) graded graduate credit hours fall and spring semesters, and maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative grade-point average.
Students can qualify for Work Study as part of their financial aid package. Work Study provides students with part-time employment to help meet college costs and can provide work experience in a related field. Work study is federally funded and need-based. Information you provide on your FAFSA determines eligibility. Some non-need based state work study is also available.
