There are a number of ways for students to gain valuable work experience while earning
a few extra dollars to pay the bills and enjoy campus life. Opportunities for students
to work include:
Federal Work Study is awarded to full time, registered students who demonstrate financial need as determined by their FAFSA. Eligible students are able to select from a wide range of positions including jobs in Residential Life, Athletics, and various Administrative offices. Students also have the option to work off campus in a Community Service capacity. Generally, students work between 6-8 hours a week but can work a maximum of 20 hours per week. Currently students are paid the minimum wage set by the State of Connecticut. Students are not permitted to work in multiple Federal Work Study positions.
Institutional Student Employment (Bursary) is offered by individual offices and departments to registered students. Bursary students are paid on a weekly basis and may work up to 20 hours per week. Students with multiple jobs are still held to the 20 hours a week maximum.
