Work Study

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, follow the instructions listed on the Managing Your Work-Study Award webpage. 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.
