Work Study Supervisors

Work Study positions should have some or all of the following job characteristics:

 

  • Be designed to accommodate students' academic schedules
  • Be situated on or near campus
  • Consist of duties that may not otherwise be done.
  • Not conflict with any existing collective agreements

 

If jobs are not on campus the duties undertaken by the student should benefit the University and should not generate a profit or promote a specific political or religious view.

The Work Study program is available to Undergraduate, Professional, Graduate, and International students. However, different criteria and application procedures may apply. Please visit the student Work Study web page for further information.
