Eligibility for Student Employment
Most student employment is available through the Federal Work-Study program. In order to be eligible, you must have completed a Federal Financial Aid Application (FAFSA), received an award letter that indicates your award amount for work-study funds, and have returned the accepted award to Student Services.
Hours Worked Per Week
Generally students work 5- 10 hours per week. The number of hours will vary according to the department needs and the student's availability.
• First year students = $7.25 per hour
• Students who continue after the first year in the same position = $7.75 per hour
