The majority of departments are seeking light office skills. Employment ranges from working in the dean's office to caring for livestock for Agricultural and Natural Resource Management.

Students should have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. and be in good academic standing. Some departments may indicate a higher GPA is desirable. Some positions may require that the students have their own transportation. Jobs listed as requiring Work-Study eligibility indicate the student who applies and works must be awarded Federal Work-study funding as part of their financial aid award. Jobs listed as Institutional are positions for which any student can apply and work, regardless of financial aid award or Federal Work-study eligiblity.

Most departments are looking for a student who has blocks of time available, such as Tuesday and Thursday afternoons or Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8 a.m. to noon. Student workers usually are employed for a 20-hour work week. A few departments may need a student worker for fewer weekly hours, and occasionally a student worker may be required only for a special activity or event.
When to Apply
Students should apply at the beginning of the semester after they have completed registration process and know their daily schedule. They are asked to re-apply each semester if they have not been employed and want to be considered after their schedule changes. Student Employment Checklist
