Hours & Payment

Students typically work on campus and average 8-12 hours a week and are not allowed to work more than 25 hours per week (though most work-study jobs do not allow for that many hours). Students will be paid every two weeks (by check, electronic funds deposit, or directly their earnings to go toward their student account to pay tuition).

Non-Work-Study Jobs

While campus employers generally prioritize hiring Federal Work-Study eligible students, there are on-campus employment opportunities for those who are not offered the Federal Work-Study program. For information on all areas related to student employment, please visit the Student Success Center at UC312.
