If you're looking for part-time, on-campus work while you're studying, two types of positions are available:
- Work Study Student Assistant
- Student Assistant
Work Study Student Assistant
The Work Study Program offers part-time job opportunities on KPU campuses to full-time undergraduate students. The program provides financial assistance and career related employment experiences to students with demonstrated financial need. In recognizing that students' first commitment is to their studies, these positions are flexible and can offer challenging work and future experience for students who will work directly with faculty members, administrative and academic units.
To participate in the Work Study Program, students must demonstrate financial need, have a minimum CGPA of 2.0 and be registered as a full-time student*. Approved applicants are placed on a first-come, first-served basis until available funding has been fully allocated.
Work Study awards are adjudicated by the Student Awards and Financial Assistance (SAFA) Office while work-study placements are arranged through Career Services.
Dozens of new Work Study positions will be rolled out in the summer on Career Connection for the following year.
