Student Employment

For many students, part-time employment is the beginning of a record that will not only follow the student through college but also out into the working world after graduation.

Students should look at college employment as a chance to build a positive work record that may be used in the future to obtain employment.

It may also be advantageous for you to apply for financial aid to assist you with meeting your educational goals. This may also include being eligible for the Federal Work Study program.

Find out if you are eligible and put student employment to work for you!

Employment Criteria

  • Students should be enrolled in at least six hours of college-level courses or acceptable remedial courses. The credit hours must be 1000-level and above or remedial courses that qualify for financial aid.
