More Options for Off-Campus Employment

On-Campus Employment Information

  • 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 regularly, and especially at the beginning of the semester. On campus positions are in high demand and go quickly!
