On and Off Campus Student Jobs

Student employment promotes campus involvement, supports the educational experience and provides students with valuable work experience. Example positions include working as a Tutor, Front Desk Staff, Custodial or Food Service Assistant, etc. There are two primary types of on and off campus student jobs:

Student Help (on campus)

Student Help jobs are on campus positions funded and supported through individual departments. Positions and duties vary.  Positions are available for eligible and qualified students and do not require financial need.

Federal Work Study (on and off campus)

The Federal Work Study Program provides jobs for students with financial need. The amount of Federal Work Study awarded depends on financial need as determined by the FAFSA, the amount of other financial aid awarded, and the availability of funds at Madison College.
