Miami is committed to employing students. Students are a valuable part-time employees who make significant contributions to campus operations.
Working on campus will not only provide income; it will foster responsibility, encourage you to budget your time wisely, and offer opportunities for learning and skill development. Students who choose to work on campus appreciate the convenience of job locations and the opportunity to become better acquainted with faculty and staff. They also like the fact that university employers are understanding and flexible about academic demands.
Federal Work-Study Program
Federal Work-Study is a federal financial aid program based on need computed from information you provide on the FAFSA. If you indicated an interest in work-study on the FAFSA, filed the FAFSA by our priority deadline, and are otherwise eligible, your award package may include federal work study. If you submitted the FAFSA and are not sure whether you are eligible for work-study, inquire at the Office of Student Financial Assistance. Many departments prefer to hire work-study students since a portion of the employee's wage is drawn from federal funds. (Federal work-study earnings are not credited to your Bursar account.)
Regular Wage Employment
Regular wage employment, the option chosen by more than half of the students working for the university, is for students who want to work on campus but who are not eligible for federal work-study.
Both federal-work study and regular wage employment offer part-time work, predominantly located on campus.
