Student Employment

The goal of Methodist University Student Employment is to provide students with a meaningful work experience that will help build their career readiness skills for the rapidly changing workforce. In addition to the Federal Work Study program, Methodist University offers a Student Employment program that allows all full-time, main campus undergraduate students to apply for meaningful, on-campus work experiences.

All main campus, undergraduate students taking at least 12+ semester hours are eligible for Student Employment.

Federal Work Study: The Federal Work Study program is federally funded and provides employment for students with financial need. Eligible students will receive a financial aid offer with an allotted amount of money they may earn during an academic year. However, students eligible for Federal Work Study may earn additional funds through the Methodist University Student Employment program.

Please contact Dr. Taylor Vann if you have any Student Employment questions. Visit the Methodist University Student Employment page on Handshake to see a list of jobs and apply for positions.
