Work-study and student employment

Work-study is an opportunity for on-campus employment. Earning money through work-study can help you to finance your education while providing you with the opportunity to become a valuable part of the campus community. It can give you an opportunity to explore and affirm your career choice and gain critical skills to improve your marketability for professional employment. Additionally, research indicates that students who work part-time on campus achieve higher grade point averages and are more likely to complete their degrees.
