Student Employment

Student employment provides an opportunity to earn money to help pay educational costs. Students are paid an hourly wage, and time sheets are submitted twice a month. Student Employment earnings are directly deposited on the 15th and last day of each month.

Student employment on campus can either be in positions funded through Federal Work Study (FWS) dollars or in positions funded through institutional dollars (IWS). If a student is eligible for Federal Work Study, the assistance is included in the Financial Aid Award Notice. Eligible students must apply for a position at>About DSU>Employment>Open Positions>Student Employee. Federal Work Study is a campus-based program and may be awarded according to availability of funds. Community service jobs, such as reading tutors, are available for students. A FWS award indicates that the student is eligible to seek FWS employment; however, it is not guarantee of a job. Students who are not awarded FWS may apply for institutionally funded positions if available. Contact the Human Resources office for more information.
