Many students help defray the costs of their education by working in one of the student employment programs offered at Union University. Factors considered in matching students with jobs include the skills and experience of the student, the availability of a suitable job, and in some cases financial eligibility of the student, as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. However jobs are limited, therefore eligibility does not guarantee a student a job. Any questions concerning Student Employment can be directed to Hannah Christensen, Student Employment Coordinator at (731) 661-5406 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Institutional Workship is an on-campus employment program funded by the university. If you want to be considered for Institutional Workship you must submit the Application for Scholarships and Financial Assistance and the Student Employment Interview Application. If a student is placed in an Institutional Workship position, the amount the student earns each month will be credited to the his/her student account, unless the amount exceeds any balance owed on the account. In such a case the student will receive a paycheck for the amount earned which exceeds the amount owed. Students enrolled in the FACTS payment plan will not receive a paycheck until their account is paid.
Federal Work Study is a federally-funded, campus-based work program where eligibility is determined by the FAFSA application. If you want to be considered for Work Study, you must file the FAFSA, in addition to submitting Union’s Application for Scholarships and Financial Assistance and the Student Employment Interview Application. Students on Federal Work Study will receive a monthly paycheck for hours worked. On-campus as well as some off-campus tutoring and after-school positions may be available.
New incoming students will be notified via mail or e-mail if potentially hired for a workship or work study position before the semester begins. Some positions may require an interview with the department supervisor before placement.
