TYPES OF EMPLOYMENT

Regular Part-Time Employment

Part-time employment is available to students who want to work but do not qualify for work study programs. Although the Student Employment Office does not accept resumes nor applications, students may complete a profile and view both on- and off-campus positions online. Students may also seek employment on their own by visiting offices, departments, and other organizations of their choice. In either case, the student is responsible for interview arrangements, salary agreements, and working hours. On-campus student employees are hired for an average of 20 hours per week, are paid bi-weekly and are not eligible for fringe benefits such as holiday, vacation, or sick pay.

Students in the Bryan/College Station area should access Jobs for Aggies to view on- and off-campus positions. Students in Galveston should access the Galveston Human Resources website to see available on-campus positions. Students at the Texas A&M Law School can find on- and off-campus job opportunities through the Law School Career Services website.

Federal or Texas College Work Study

The Federal and Texas College Work Study Programs provide on-campus, part-time employment for U.S. citizens, permanent residents and certain other non-citizens who are half-time students and have a demonstrated financial need. The maximum amount a recipient may earn under this program is determined through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students employed under this program work an average of 20 hours per week (depending upon financial aid award and class schedule). Federal and Texas College Work Study funds are distributed on a bi-weekly payroll basis. Federal and Texas College Work Study jobs are posted online.

It is the responsibility of the student to notify his/her employer of the work study award. Printable certificates are available online through howdy.tamu.edu.
