Graduate Student Employment
Many students who have been awarded federal work-study finance a portion of their educational expenses through part-time on-campus or off-campus employment. Students are paid directly, biweekly, based on hours worked.
Each student may work a maximum of 20 hours per week. Earnings vary depending on the number of hours worked; a student who works seven hours per week for the academic year can earn about $2,000. Students not awarded federal work-study may seek employment with College departments and offices on an individually approved basis.
The Career Center
The Career Center staff can assist students in identifying off-campus, career-related positions. These experiences may provide students with the opportunity to earn money while gaining valuable career-related experience.
