On-Campus Employment

There are also two types of on-campus employment:

Student Assistant

  • To work as a Student Assistant, students must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA and be enrolled in at least 6 hours during the spring and fall semesters or 3 hours during the summer semester.
  • To find out if you are eligible to work on-campus, read the Student Assistant Policies or contact the Career and Transfer Services Office for more information.
  • To apply for a Student Assistant or Work Study position, complete and return the application to our office (Moler Hall). A signature is required.

Federal Work Study (FWS)

  • A federally funded program providing part-time employment on-campus for students who qualify. Students can work 17.5 hours a week, and their work hours are scheduled around their classes.
  • For a list of Federal Work Study opportunities, go to Handshake.
