Student Employment

Build your Resume and Gain New Skills

Many students benefit from working part time while going to college. Employment can help you finance your education and provides opportunities for you to gain experience and to develop skills for future success in your career.

Types of Jobs

Federal College Work-Study

Work study is a need-based, dollar allotment provided as part of your financial aid offer, and not automatically applied to your account like other financial aid. You’ll be 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 your bill. Any UW-Superior student with a work-study offer may apply for work-study jobs.

Student Assist

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.

Part-Time Off-Campus Jobs

Part time off-campus jobs are posted by area employers who are seeking college students to work in their organizations.
