More Options for On-Campus Employment
Federal Work Study positions are awarded to students who demonstrate financial need on their FAFSA for the current school year. The program is managed through the Financial Aid office in Erwin 104. Most entry level jobs on campus are first filled through the work study program. Please visit Financial Aid if you have questions specific to the Work study program.
Temporary Service positions are not based on financial need. Any full-time student is eligible to work under this category. The jobs are often very similar to work study positions, but paid through a different budget line. Any Temporary Service position reported to us is posted on Handshake. Check the site often! On campus positions are in high demand and go quickly!
Keep in mind that not all on-campus jobs are advertised with us. Check with specific offices, departments, libraries, dining halls, and residence halls (night hosting) for other on-campus positions.
