How to apply for a budget job:

A Budget job allows a student to work on campus and be paid through the department's individual budget. You do not have to be eligible for Federal Work Study to apply for a budget position.

  1. You can view all Budget jobs in the Working on Campus section of the Financial Aid website.

  2. Each individual job is listed with a brief job description.

  3. When you find a job for which you are interested, you must contact the person listed as the supervisor in that particular office to apply.

  4. If you are hired for the position, your next step is to come to the Office of Financial Aid and fill out a Budget Job form. This form is available in the Forms section of the Financial Aid website.

  5. Your supervisor will complete this form, and you will return it to the Office of Financial Aid.

  6. After the Office of Financial Aid signs the Budget Job Form, your last step is to take it to Human Resources. Their office is located on the first floor of the Administration Building.
Please note that first time student workers must provide certain documents to the Office of Human Resources to prove eligibility to be employed in the United States.
