Student Employment

Federal Work Study

Many students are able to help meet their educational costs by working at part-time jobs during their university experience. Student employment is available in many academic and administrative offices on campus, as well as in the food service and physical plant departments and numerous off-campus community service locations. Students work about 7 hours per week.  Students may apply for employment positions by completing the student employment application and contacting appropriate supervisors.
Returning students are encouraged to make arrangements for employment with supervisors before they leave campus in the spring. New students should pursue work-study placements as soon as eligibility has been determined.

EMU Work Program

Not all students are eligible for the Undergraduate Federal Work-Study program. A limited number of undergraduate international students may be offered the opportunity for on-campus employment prior to enrolling as a regular undergraduate student. No additional offers are made to international students after enrollment.
Also, due to the nature of certain on-campus employment opportunities, students may be paid from EMU Work Programs funds.

Off-Campus Employment

Many persons in the community ask for students to provide child care, do yard work, clean house, etc. These jobs are posted on the website at:
