Student Employment

General Information

Federal Work Study is a form of financial aid and is awarded to eligible students. Other student employment is also available. A work-study award does not guarantee employment but enables students to apply for jobs through listings available at Career Services. Payment for hours worked is funded through Federal Work Study Program funds. Typically, students offered on-campus jobs work 4 to 12 hours a week. The wide range of part-time jobs includes office work, data entry, reception and library duties, computer support, lifeguarding, and instructor assistant opportunities. Most jobs are on-campus, but some off-campus jobs may be available. Students who obtain Federal Work Study employment are paid for hours actually worked.

Resident Assistants

Resident assistants are paraprofessional staff members who work in the residential community to promote responsible community living. Hiring preference is given to students who have completed one full semester. Applications and information are available through the Division of Student Life.

Other Student Employment

Other forms of student employment are available at Mills. These are not considered financial aid and do not appear on a student’s award letter. Please visit the Career Services Center for more information about other student employment opportunities.
