Frequently asked questions

What kind of student employment is available on campus?

There are two kinds of student employment on campus: Federal Work-Study and non work-study. Essentially they are the same, except for the source of funding. Federal Work-Study jobs are funded by the Federal government and are available only to students who have Work-Study as part of their financial aid award. Non-work-study jobs are funded by the hiring department and are available to all students who wish to work on campus. While you may have more than one job on campus, you may have only one Federal Work-Study job.

Where are the jobs located?

There are many types of jobs available for both Federal Work-Study and non work-study employees. Students have the opportunity to work for a variety of employers, such as the library, the athletic center, the campus center, the computer support group, the web development team, housing and many others. There are also opportunities to work off-campus through the Federal Work-Study program at non-profit agencies. You'll find all the available job listings at CORSAIR Jobs.

Will the Federal Work-Study award get deducted from my bill?

No, you will be paid an hourly wage for work performed and receive a paycheck every two weeks. There is a direct deposit is available through HR Direct.
