Student Jobs on Campus
Making It Work—and Getting Paid for It!
Working on campus is a way to build skills, gain experience, and help to pay for your education (or simply earn cash to live on). There are two types of student employment at Wentworth:
- Federal work study – Provided by Wentworth and the U.S. government through financial aid, federal work study is designed to help first- and second-year students meet educational expenses by working while attending classes. Juniors and seniors are eligible for WIT Work, which follows the same guidelines and policies as federal work study.
- Leopardwork – The Leopardwork Program is funded entirely by Wentworth; financial need is not a determining factor for eligibility. Students wishing to apply for a Leopardwork job must be enrolled at least half-time in a degree program, maintain satisfactory academic progress, and be eligible to work in the U.S.
- To work on campus, you must complete the following documentation prior to your start date. Failure to complete your I-9 in the required timeframe is against the law and may lead to your award being rescinded.
