Most people go to college so they can eventually get a higher-paying and satisfying career. But to get to that point, most students need to work at least in the summers if not year-round. These jobs are important for the combination of money, experience, work ethic, and relationships they provide. Students may find helpful information posted in "The World of Work".

Federal Work Study
The Federal Work-Study Program allows students to work on campus (or off-campus as part of our community service outreach efforts) and earn funds to meet the cost of attending Loyola. In order to qualify for a work-study award, students are required to file the FAFSA. The university administers this program in accordance with the laws, federal regulations, and instructions issued by or on behalf of the Department of Education, as well as its own institutional policies. A student’s eligibility to participate in the work-study program is reviewed annually. Work-study awards are given for the academic year (approximately August – May). To learn more, visit the Office of Human Resources' Work-Study Program page.
Other Employment Opportunities
Student assistant positions are recruited through the hiring departments. Students do not have to be eligible for federal work-study for these jobs. For information about student assistant openings, go to http://finance.loyno.edu/human-resources/employment .
