Types of Jobs

Federal College Work-Study is a need-based financial aid offer that allows a student to work and earn money. Work study is a dollar allotment provided as part of your financial aid offer, and not automatically applied to your account like other financial aid. Dollars are earned by the student employee and are paid on a bi-weekly basis via direct deposit. Employment through the federal work study program is not a guarantee and should not be relied on as a manner for covering a student’s bill. Any UW-Superior student with a work-study offer may apply for work-study jobs.

Student Assist is on-campus employment that is not a part of a financial aid offer. Any UW-Superior student who is enrolled at least half-time may apply for student assist jobs.
