Students who demonstrate financial need may be employed through the Federal Work Study program for a maximum of 15 to 20 hours per week during the regular academic year. Students desiring a work study award are encouraged to submit their FAFSA before March 1 each year as funds are extremely limited.

Law students who qualify for work study funds may find positions at the School of Law or in law-related jobs with nonprofit agencies such as Neighborhood Legal Services-Michigan.

The University also offers a small number of part-time, non-work-study jobs for students who have no financial need or whose need is met through other sources. Full-time international students may work in one of these non-work-study positions only. All of these jobs are on campus.

Jobs are mainly of two types: clerical and research assistants. Clerical positions may start in the $10-$12 hourly range; most research assistantships start at $12 per hour.

Please see the Student Employment Information Sheet showing the documents students need to work during the 2011-12 academic year.
