Am I eligible?

Beginning with the first year at Wright State and continuing through graduate school, and meeting minimum enrollment requirements as specified in Student Employment Policies, Procedures, & Answers, all students are eligible for on-campus employment paid through departmental funds, which the Career Center calls Regular Student Employment.

Positions funded in part by Federal Work-Study Awards are available for students who meet minimum enrollment requirements, and who have been awarded and accepted Federal Work-Study as part of their financial aid package. These jobs are called Work-Study Student Employment.

How do I search, apply, & get hired?
