Student Employment Opportunities

Campus work opportunities for students are available through two programs: The Federal Work Study Program [FWS] and the Institutional Student Employment Program [ISEP]. Employment is administered through the Payroll Office.

FWS is a need-based work program. Students who demonstrate need and are awarded FWS funds as part of their financial aid award package are eligible to be employed through FWS. ISEP is not a need-based program and students may seek employment through ISEP regardless of whether or not they have completed the application process for financial aid. Under both programs, FWS and ISEP, students are paid biweekly for hours actually worked.

A list of available FWS and ISEP positions can be found on the Student Employment website. 

Federal government regulations require that individuals must provide certain original forms of identification before beginning work. Once a student has found a job, instructions for completing the I-9 and other required forms can be found on the Student Employment website.
