Working On Campus
Ben Chavez, ’11, plans to be a teacher. When he came to Redlands, he found it easy to build relationships with professors and enjoyed the small, intimate nature of the classes here.
Ben worked during the summer with campus maintenance, helped with walkthroughs to get students prepared for the coming year and assisted the electricians, plumbers and HVAC techs to the point where he could take calls on his own.
“Now I catch myself doing things around my own house I never thought I would do. I see the money that can be made in these fields, but also know it’s not about the money, it’s about being happy about what you are doing.”
The work-study program offers part-time job opportunities both on and off campus to eligible financial aid recipients who need assistance to meet college expenses.
As a student in the work-study program, you gain “real world” experience and personal career growth through practical skill-building and learning opportunities on the job.
Students are eligible for on-campus employment (work-study program) if they are enrolled as a full-time (at least 12 units) College undergraduate student in good standing, and received a work award as part of their financial aid package.
Work award eligibility is determined by the Financial Aid Office and is based on demonstrated need, according to financial aid policies.
If you are eligible, you are required to attend one of the “Student Employment: Work-Study Programs at the University of Redlands” workshops offered during New Student Week. After that meeting, you will be given an employment application. Students will make an appointment for a job referral during the first few weeks of class. Jobs are not assigned and students interview for available positions.
