Student Employment

Student Employment Opportunities
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 $9.15 per hour.  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.
Graduate Work Program positions are offered to registered graduate students only.  Prospective students can apply online through the Graduate Financial Aid page.  Typically there is a half tuition waiver up to 12 credits a trimester and a stipend amount of 200 hours per trimester paid at Connecticut minimum wage of $9.15 per hour.  International graduate students are only eligible for Teaching and Research assistantships.  More information is available on the Graduate Work Program page.
