Work-Study Jobs

College work-study is a financial aid program funded by the federal and/or state governments and is awarded to students based upon financial need by the Financial Aid Office. If you qualified for work-study funds, to utilize these funds you must find a job. Apply for work-study positions through your CometCareers account.

There may be off-campus, community service, part-time employment opportunities available for students who have qualified for work-study. If you are qualified, you will see these opportunities when you are searching for part-time jobs within the CometCareers.

F-1 Visa Students Please Note: College Work-Study Jobs are available only to US citizens, permanent residents, temporary legal residents, asylees, and refugees; therefore, you are not eligible to apply for any on-campus job listed as a work-study job.

Student Employee of the Year Program

Student employees provide a valuable service to the University, and we want to show appreciation to our student workers. We coordinate the annual Student Employee of the Year Program, including a celebration to honor all student employees at the University.

A reception takes place during the second full week in April (this date coincides with the National Student Employment Association(NSEA) Student Employment Week). The Student Employee of the Year Award winners are presented their awards individually.
