Student Employment

Shippensburg University hires a number of students to work part-time on campus. The University is introducing a new centralized system to post all available positions on campus through our Career Center.  The system is called SHIP Career Connections.  Students interested in looking into work on campus should click on the link and follow instructions.

To set up a profile and review available positions on campus students will need to upload a RESUME. Please have a resume ready when you are ready to set up your profile. If you need assistance with creating a resume or setting up your profile, please contact the Career Center at 717-477-1484 or visit them in the Ceddia Union Building (CUB) room 108, or email them at career@ship.edu.

Students who have been awarded Federal Work Study (FWS) as part of their financial aid award may apply for any open position on campus (both those listed as Federal Work Study and those listed as University Student Employment). Please print out a copy of your aid award showing that you have been awarded Federal Work Study in case your employer needs to confirm this.

Students who have NOT been awarded Federal Work Study, can apply for any position that is listed as University Student Employment.

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 the SHIP Career Connections cite.

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 FWS funding with finding a position. Schedule an appointment to meet with the Federal Work Study coordinator in the Office of Financial Aid.


FYI: A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be filed for Federal Work Study (FWS). A FAFSA is not required for campus employment positions funded by the University.
