The employer pays the full amount of the student's wage.
Most on-campus jobs are through the Regular Student Employment Program. All students enrolled for at least 6 credits (5 if in a graduate degree program) can apply for these jobs. You do not need to apply for financial aid to work as a Regular Student Employee. If you do receive financial aid, Regular Student Employment earnings will not reduce your award.
Departments hiring the most students include the large service areas (such as Dining Services and the Library). Because these departments hire so many students, they offer the most flexible work schedules and often pay higher wages.
