Student Employment

One popular source of financial aid is student employment. Student employment includes federal and state need-based work study programs, no-need work study programs and student-hourly employment, which is available to any student enrolled at least half time, regardless of their financial aid eligibility.

Research shows that students who are employed while attending college tend to get better grades because they are more organized and responsible.

The Office of Student Employment at UNC is a part of the Office of Financial Aid and serves students seeking employment on and off campus during the academic year and summer term.
