What is Student Employment?
Students are given an opportunity to further enhance their classroom experiences by obtaining employment at a variety of job settings both on and off campus. This can not only assist in development of a possible career path, but also defray the cost of some college expenses.
Who works for Student Employment?
Student Employment is open to all full-time undergraduate students who have been issued a work award in their financial aid package. These awards include Federal Work-Study and Student Employment awards. Student Employment positions are not guaranteed and are competitive. Student Employment offers jobs on and off campus in many different environments. On campus, students have the opportunity to work one on one with professors as well as many of the offices found around campus. Our wonderful Off-Campus Community Partnership Program offers many opportunities too. Working an Off-Campus job helps you to obtain a connection to the Springfield community. This program allows our students to work in schools, businesses and many other types of settings.
