Student Jobs & Work Study
Campus jobs are a great opportunity to gain work experience and earn money for college.
Many students also work part-time during college to help cover tuition costs and living expenses.
WSU departments employ over 1,000 students each year in either work study or student help positions.
Whether you have a work study job or student help job, you’ll earn the university minimum wage and receive a paycheck every two weeks.
Work study is part of your financial aid award, and it’s given to students who have financial need.
Work study programs are funded through both the federal government and State of Minnesota. However, you must be a Minnesota resident to receive state work study awards.
To be considered for work study, the first step is to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Once you’ve been awarded work study, then you’ll start searching for a work study job.
