Student Employment FAQs
How do I get a job on-campus?
The majority of on-campus positions require a work study award. You will need to check
the UD Blue Board to see a list of available positions. Most positions will usually request that you
apply within. Bring your schedule so you can determine if your availability meets
the needs of the department.
Once you've received confirmation that you have been hired by a supervisor, and you
have never worked on campus, you will need to complete new hire paperwork which is
available here and in the Office of Human Resources.
You cannot begin working until New Hire Paperwork is completed & submitted to HR.
Work study is awarded through Financial Aid to eligible students. Work study is a
need-based award, and completion of a FAFSA is required to determine eligibility.
Work study is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis so returning students must
complete their FAFSA by January 15 of each year in order to be considered for an award
for the following year.
*Once you've been awarded Work Study, you will have a limited amount of time to obtain
a job before your award is cancelled. For current deadline dates, contact the Office
of Financial Aid or the Office of Human Resources.
How do I know if I have received an award?
If you receive an award, it will show on your financial aid letter and you will find
it in your UD online student account.
I don't have Work Study, can I still get a job on campus?
There are some student jobs that are funded through department budgets. Please refer
to UD Blue Board under for positions that do not require work study or positions that are open for
work study and non work study.
Some on-campus contractors, such as Aramark (Cafeteria) and Follet Bookstore offer
non work study jobs. Aramark and Follet both accept applications throughout the year, though most of their
hiring is done at the beginning of each semester.
