All students are encouraged to work as a part of connecting to Wesleyan community regardless of their work-study eligibility. To determine if you are Federal Work-Study or Wesleyan Term-Time Employment eligible, please see your financial aid award letter or consult with the Financial Aid Office. Your award letter will indicate maximum work-study/ employment earnings for the academic year.

Non-Work-Study employment is informally posted on the "Job Board"* located in the Financial Aid Office. These jobs may be located on or off-campus and have ranged from babysitting to part-time work in a local law office. 

Non-work-study eligible students may also wish to inquire directly with departments on-campus as to the availability of non-work-study jobs. The best way to determine this is to consult the job posting board and contact employers to see if they are hiring non-work-study eligible students. It is very important that you identify your status as not eligible for work-study when discussing a position with a prospective employer. 

The Financial Aid/Student Employment Office at Wesleyan University does not research the integrity of each employer listing a job due to the volume of jobs received by this office. Therefore, you are urged to undertake this responsibility for yourself. Wesleyan’s Student Employment Office acts only as a referral service and makes no particular recommendations regarding potential employers. Neither Wesleyan University nor the Student Employment Office makes any representation or guarantee whatsoever about any position listed on the Job Board, nor does Wesleyan University or the Student Employment Office assume any responsibility for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of off-campus non-contract employment.
