Work-Study provides part-time jobs for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay for educational expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to students’ course of study. Work-Study is available to full-time and part-time students.
If you would like to be considered for Work-Study, mark “yes” to the question on the FAFSA that asks whether you are interested in student employment. Work-Study awards are based on available funds.
Once you have been awarded Work-Study as part of your financial aid package, it is up to you to find an approved job. Employment opportunities are available on and off campus, but keep in mind that the job must be classified as Work-Study.
Work-Study job listings can be found on HireUTexas powered by Handshake, the university’s new job board for students who are seeking a part-time job, as well as internships and full-time career opportunities. If you have questions about HireUTexas, email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions about your Work-Study eligibility or policies, email email@example.com.
Employers interested in hiring Work-Study students should visit the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid website for more information.
Work-Study and Part-time Job Fair
Find part-time employment opportunities and connect with prospective employers, including on-campus and approved off-campus employers searching for talented students to work part-time this fall and spring. Some employers will hire on the spot.
The fair is open to both full-time students and part-time students (enrolled in at least 6 hours). All students should upload their resume to their HireUTexas profile and students with work-study awards should have a PDF file format of their Work-Study Verification available to upload.
The job fair is held each fall and will be virtual in 2021. Event details will be provided on this page later this summer.
NOTE: Work-Study programs at UT include Federal Work-Study, State Work-Study, and Institutional Work-Study.
