On-Campus Work

If you're looking for part-time, on-campus work while you're studying, two types of positions are available:

  • Work Study Student Assistant

Work Study Student Assistant

Work Study is part-time on campus employment designed to assist students, who have already qualified for a student loan, with a regular source of income. In recognizing that students' first commitment is to their studies, these positions are flexible and offer students training and experience that will assist in further studies and eventual entrance into the workforce. This is a chance to gain valuable work experience, with an employer who is dedicated to both academic and career success. Over a dozen new Work Study positions will be rolled out in the summer on Career Connection for the fall and winter terms.
