Student Employment

Student employment, including work-study programs, offers students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience while earning money to help cover some of their college expenses. Students can enhance their current course work as well as their future professions by integrating classroom learning with real-world work experience. 

Seattle University provides on-campus and off-campus, need-based and non-need-based student employment options. 

To qualify for the need-based programs, students must file a FAFSA each year which determines their eligibility for this type of funding.  

To qualify for the non-need-based programs, all students need is a desire to work and to make the necessary contacts to talk with prospective employers. 

Policies and procedures related to student employment can be found in the Guide to On-Campus Student Employment. This guide also contains step by step processes for hiring a student employee.
