Federal Work Study

Your Financial Aid Award Letter will state if you have been awarded Federal Work-Study as part of your financial aid package.  If so, you are eligible to apply to on-campus work study opportunities.   Search for On-Campus Work-Study under Position Type on  Purchase JobScore.  

On-Campus Non Work-Study (Temp Service)

Students who were not awarded “Federal Work Study” can apply to Temp Service/Non Work-Study positions on campus.  Search for On-Campus Non Work-Study under Position Type on Purchase JobScore.   

Searching for Campus Positions

In the event that a department has not listed their opportunities on Purchase JobScore you may also contact the departments directly where you are interested, and inquire about possible job opportunities.
