Student Employment

Funds for part-time jobs are provided for in the budgets of various departments on campus and also by the federal government. All student employees of UNCG, upon being hired, must present proper documentation verifying their identity and employment eligibility as required by the Federal Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986.

Original documentation must be presented on or before the first day of work. A list of acceptable documents can be found on the Student Employment Web site.

Federal Work-Study Program

The federal government provides funds for part-time on- and off-campus jobs for students through the Federal Work-Study Program. The average student job requires 10 to 15 hours per week. To be considered for Work-Study, a student need only complete the FAFSA and indicate interest in student employment on the form. Federal Work-Study is a need-based program with limited funding. Not all students who indicate interest will be offered Work-Study.

Other On-Campus Employment

Part-time jobs on campus are available for students who do not qualify for Federal Work-Study and want to earn money for a portion of their college expenses. The Career Services Center, located in the Elliott University Center on the UNCG campus, maintains a listing of these jobs. Students are eligible to use the Career Services Center as soon as they have been accepted for Admission.
