Human Resources and Faculty Relations
Student employment opportunities are offered through three programs: Federal Work Study, Institutional Work Study and Graduate Assistantships. To receive student employment, all U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens are required to complete the FAFSA. However, students who receive student employment awards are not guaranteed a job. To receive a job opportunity, students are required to actively engage in acquiring employment.
To view all jobs available on campus, students must log into the myEdinboro portal and click the “Jobs” tab on the navigation bar at the top. Please check this often, as jobs are posted when they become available.
Depending on the position, students may work up to 15 hours per week at no less than minimum wage. Students are limited to no more than two jobs are campus and cannot work more than 15 hours a week between all jobs. Students are also limited to 7.5 hours in one day.
The Federal Work Study (FWS) program is a need-based employment opportunity and may be given priority hiring. Students generally work 15 hours per week at minimum wage. In most cases, the Institutional Work Study program is based on need. Students generally work 15 hours per week at minimum wage.
Graduate Assistantships (GA) are awarded by the School of Graduate Studies and Research. The number of hours is dependent on the appointment. The hourly rate is above minimum wage. In addition to the stipend, GA’s receive a waiver of tuition proportioned to their appointment. Graduate Assistants may work during periods of non-enrollment (Winter and Summer break as long as they are still degree seeking students) in the same area as their assistantship depending on department budgets.
Students who decline student employment with the Financial Aid Office are not able to gain employment until the next academic year. All awards are final.
Students who are receiving a dependent tuition waiver are allowed to work on campus, but cannot work in the same division as their family member, regardless of supervisory role.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Payroll Office or the Financial Aid Office.
