Life University (Life U) offers student employment for both Work-Study candidates and part-time student positions. Let’s kick off your student job search!

Work-Study Opportunities

Federal Work-Study is a federally funded program that provides part-time job opportunities for eligible undergraduate, graduate or professional students with financial need. It allows them to earn money to help pay for educational expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to students’ course of study. Completion of the FAFSA, enrollment status and Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) determine eligibility. Only students qualified by Financial Aid are eligible to participate in the program at Life U.

If a student is awarded Work-Study funds and chooses not to apply for a job, that will not affect their current financial aid package or future eligibility for Work-Study. Students can view their financial aid award/offer, which includes if they received Work-Study funds, through EagleNet. Please contact your Financial Aid Counselor if you have any questions about your current award, potential earnings or being awarded the opportunity to receive Work-Study funding.

Part-Time Employment Opportunities

Part-time employment opportunities are available for students who are seeking employment on campus. These opportunities are available for both domestic and international students who are eligible to work in the United States. International students must work with the institution’s Coordinator of International Programs before proceeding with employment opportunities.
