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.
