  • Click on “Search” just below the dropdown.

This will provide a list of all currently available work-study positions.

  • Click on a JOB TITLE to view the full description. At the bottom of each job description, select the “Back” button to return to the list of available work-study positions
  • Review each position carefully
  • If qualified, follow the “How-to-Apply” instructions provided by the hiring supervisor.
