Learn More About On-Campus Employment

There are 2 types of on-campus employment:

Student Assistant

  • Part-time, on-campus employment for currently enrolled students. Positions are funded by the employing department and available on a limited basis. Students can work 19.5 hours a week and their work hours are scheduled around their classes.

Federal Work Study (FWS)

  • FWS is a federally funded program providing part-time, on-campus employment for currently enrolled students. Only students who qualify for financial aid are eligible for this program. Student wages are paid by FWS allocations, NOT by the employing department. Positions are available on a limited basis.
  • Your department may be eligible to hire a FWS employee. To find out if your department qualifies, contact the Student Career & Employment Office at 281.425.6572.
