What jobs are available? How can my student get one?

Students are employed on campus in almost every department. Positions range from student assistants, to facilities maintenance to peer tutoring.

The Off-Campus Work-Study Program provides employment opportunities for students in for-profit and non-profit organizations in the local community. The Redlands Unified School District and the city of Redlands are a few of our off-campus employers.

All eligible new students are required to attend one the workshops offered during New Student Week called "Student Employment: Work-Study Programs at the University of Redlands." After that meeting students will be given an employment application. Students will make an appointment for a job referral during the first few weeks of class.

What is work study?

The University has a robust work-study program that offers part-time job opportunities both on and off-campus to eligible financial aid recipients needing assistance in meeting college expenses. It also provides students with practice skills and opportunities for personal career growth.

Students typically work about 10 hours per week and have a work award limit on the amount of money they can earn in the academic year. You may e-mail your questions to the Student Employment office.
