Shippensburg University hires a number of students to work part-time on campus. For specific information on what offices and departments typically hire student workers and the process by which to apply for these jobs, take a look at Campus/Off Campus Job Opportunities.
Departmental and academic jobs vary widely from term-to-term and year-to-year. Positions include work in administrative and faculty offices, the library, classrooms, university residence halls, the Child Care Center, and on the campus grounds. As positions become available, they will be posted on a bulletin board in the Financial Aid Office.
Students are responsible for contacting departments to inquire about open positions. Students who have been awarded Federal Work Study but have not found a position on campus should contact the Financial Aid Office. The Federal Work Study coordinator assists students with finding a position. Schedule an appointment to meet with the Federal Work Study coordinator.
During the 2013-14 year, Shippensburg University will be working closely with the Career Development Office and other offices on campus to create an electronic job board where all student employment opportunities can be centralized on one site.
FYI: A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filed for Federal workstudy (FWS). A FAFSA is not required for campus employment positions funded by the University/Commonwealth.
