Student EmploymentYou have the opportunity to work on campus and earn money for your educational expenses. We offer a wide variety of professional positions in campus settings that may even align with your career pursuits. And, it’ll look great on your résumé!
Types of student employment
Federal College Work-Study is a federal need-based financial aid program designed to provide part-time employment to eligible students. We receive an allocation from the federal government each fiscal year that we combine with college funds to provide part-time jobs for students. To be considered for work-study, you’ll need to file the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
SNC Regular Employment is an option for you if you’re not eligible for Federal College Work-Study dollars but would still like to work on campus.
Note: The federal government designates certain positions on campus as being only for students who are eligible for Federal College Work-Study. We monitor those positions and will notify you (and your supervisor) if you’re ineligible for a work-study position.
