Working your way through school
Undergraduate students can work part-time at the university and obtain valuable work experience through the Federal Work-Study program. If you have any questions about your work-study financial aid or eligibility, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your financial aid advisor.
Another option is non-work-study employment through the Career Development Center. They also offer free career counseling, resume and cover letter tips, interview preparation, and the Wolfpack Clothing Closet. Visit the ePack portal to search for jobs, make an appointment with a career counselor, or schedule an interview with an on-campus employer.
