For Students

The Student Employment Program is designed to help students meet educational expenses through meaningful employment. Student employment at Webster University is divided into two different programs:

Federal Work-Study

Federal Work-Study recipients may work either on campus at the St. Louis home campus or at an approved Community Service Work-Study site. Students must be enrolled full-time to retain their award over the course of the academic year. Students have a specific award amount they can earn each fiscal year. Your Federal Work-Study award must be earned. If you have been awarded Federal Work-Study and cannot work or if you do no want to participate in the program, you must contact the Financial Aid Office in St. Louis to cancel your award.

Beginning July 1, 2016 student employees may hold up to three Federal Work-Study positions concurrently. Federal Work-Study Student Employment positions are typically posted in Gorlok Career Link.

Program Date: July 1 – June 30

Program Date for Graduating Students: July 1 - Date of graduation*    

*If a student is graduating, then the student’s graduation day is the last day of eligibility for Federal Work-Study. Federal Work-Study student employees MAY NOT earn federal funds past their date of graduation. However, departments may choose to pay their domestic graduating students through August 15 or the last full pay period before August 15 (whichever comes first) on budget funding.

Budget Student Employment

Budget Student Employment is an option for current students at the St. Louis home campus as long as they are enrolled at least half-time, regardless of their financial need. Budget Student Employment positions are typically posted in Gorlok Career Link.

Program Date: June 1–May 31*

*Undergraduate and Graduate international student graduates cannot work on campus after their last day of class.
