On-campus Employment

Interested in working on campus? Complete the Student Employment Interest Form, and we'll share your information with supervisors and notify them if you are eligible for federal workstudy. 

Federal workstudy

If you're enrolled at Northern at least half time and demonstrate financial need, Federal workstudy is available to you. Workstudy gives you the opportunity to "earn as you learn." Individuals on the workstudy program are paid monthly for hours worked. These funds should be used to cover indirect costs, since they're not available at the beginning of the term, when fee payment is due. Most workstudy awards are based on working approximately 10 hours per week. The rate is set at $13-$15 per hour. 

For a list of open on- and off-campus workstudy positions, see the Spring 2023 Quicklist, Summer 2023 Quicklist, or Fall 2023 Quicklist

Visit WolfWork for a more detailed and current list of open positions.

For more information about our workstudy employment policy, see the Workstudy Guide.

Student labor

Apply for student labor positions if you'd like to work on campus. You don't need to apply for financial aid to work in these positions. Wage rates and hours will vary depending on the position. For information, visit WolfWork or contact offices for information regarding any openings.
