Students who wish to work part time while enrolled at the University of Saint Francis may be considered for employment through the following programs:
On-campus employment is a non-need-based program that allows students who are able to work on campus up to 20 hours per week at the current minimum wage.
Federal Work-Study Program
Federal Work Study requires that a student demonstrates financial need. A student’s eligibility is determined during the financial aid awarding process. Eligibility does not guarantee a position; finding a position is the student’s responsibility. Students are required to complete an application online in My Cougar Connection. Applications are typically available by August 1 prior to the start of the academic year. The student will receive a paycheck every two weeks, rather than having it deducted from their bill. The exact amount that the student will earn is dependent upon the actual hours that are worked and the rate of pay.
State Summer Work-Study
Employment Aid Readiness Network (EARN) Indiana, launched in summer 2013, revamped the existing state work-study program. Students with financial need have access to résumé-building, experiential, paid internships, while employers receive state matching funds in exchange for hiring these students. EARN Indiana has partnered with Indiana INTERNnet to better match students and employers to maximize each student’s academic success and career achievement and to assist employers in finding the perfect fit for their team.
Information regarding this program is available through EARN Indiana.
