If you are thinking about working part-time while attending Aurora, you may want to consider campus employment. During the past year, more than 500 students were employed in various capacities by more than 20 academic, administrative, and support service departments.
Working on campus will not only provide income; it will foster responsibility, encourage you to budget your time wisely, and offer opportunities for learning and skill development. Students who choose to work on campus appreciate the convenience of job locations and the opportunity to become better acquainted with faculty and staff. University employers are understanding and flexible about academic demands. Aurora University is committed to offering meaningful work opportunities for our students, enabling them to make the transition from on-campus student work, to their future internships and/or life after college.

Federal Work Study
Federal Work-Study is a federal financial aid program based on need computed from information you provide on the FAFSA. If you submitted the FAFSA and are not sure whether you are eligible for work-study, inquire at the Office of Financial Aid. If you are a financial aid recipient, your financial aid award may include work-study eligibility. Many departments prefer to hire work-study students since a portion of the employee's wage is drawn from federal funds.
Regular Wage Employment
Regular wage employment is for students who want to work on campus but who are not eligible for federal work-study. More than half of the students working for the university do not qualify for work-study.
Students are paid bi-weekly, the minimum wage rate of $8.25/hr. for a maximum of 15 hours per week.
