Student Employment

The Student Employment program at Assumption University provides part-time employment for undergraduate students on or near campus to help pay for incidental expenses during the year. There are two programs as described below:

  • Federal Work-Study: This is a need based federally subsidized program. Students must demonstrate financial need to be awarded this form of assistance.
  • University Funding: Assumption University provides funding for students that are not eligible for Federal Work-Study, so that they can also work.

Unlike other forms of financial aid, Federal Work-Study and University Funds are not applied as a credit to student accounts. Students are paid on a bi-weekly basis for hours worked during the prior weeks. A work-study related award does not guarantee an on-campus job. Students are encouraged to secure a position and can review how to obtain a job under "Job Search" below.

Rate of Pay

  • $12.75 per hour through December 31, 2020
  • $13.50 per hour starting January 1, 2021

Due to limited funding and jobs available, students are allowed to work a maximum of 10 hours per week.

Job Search

All jobs that are available are listed on the Student Portal under the Student Employment section. Students will contact the person listed and if hired, fill out a contract and return it to the Student Employment Coordinator for completion of their employment file. Jobs are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

All student workers will submit in person, an I-9 form with documentation and a W-4 for tax purposes before they are eligible to work. Note: All documents in support of the I-9 must be unexpired and originals. Please contact our office if you have any questions about the student employment process. We can be reached at (508) 767-7158 or at
