An on-campus job doesn’t have to be all work (and no play). It’s also an opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills or discover your buried talents.
To assist students who demonstrate financial need, we participate in the Federal Work-Study Program to provide you with employment.
Annual awards range from $1,500 to $3,000 (with a wage of $7.25 an hour). Most jobs are located on campus and require you to work between 10 and 13 hours per week (on average).
A variety of jobs are available, including clerical work, communications assistant, fitness center attendant, lifeguard, office assistant, public services assistant, reference assistant or sports official.

In addition, you could choose to participate in the Workers Invested in kNowledge and Growth through Service (WINGS) program. A partnership between St. Mary’s University and Americorps, WINGS places students in local nonprofit agencies, particularly in the areas of education, elderly, health care and legal service.
