Part-Time, Work-Study and Seasonal Student Employment

Federal Work-Study

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is financial aid that is based on financial need and must be earned through student employment. Many job opportunities are available to eligible students on- or off-campus, and these experiences can be great sources of professional development. UT’s Office of Financial Aid administers work-study money and assignments.

Part-Time Jobs

The Center for Career Development & Academic Exploration houses the federal Student Job Location and Development (JLD) program, which offers assistance to students who may not qualify for the federal work-study program but who choose to work at various student employment opportunities throughout the university and community.
