Student Employment Opportunities
Mon. - Fri., 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Please Note: Wheelock College and Boston University have reached an agreement to merge as of June 1, 2018. The merger will form the Wheelock College of Education & Human Development (WCEHD) at Boston University, where programs in early childhood and K-12 education will be offered.
Student employment opportunities may be available through the Federal Work-Study Program or Off-Campus Employment.
This program provides eligible students with employment opportunities that help meet the costs of a college education. A student selects her or his job from positions offered by academic and administrative departments. The amount of the work-study award is determined by the Office of Financial Aid and must appear on a student's financial aid award for the student to be able to participate in the program.
Funds earned on the program are paid to students on an every other week basis in the form of a check for the hours worked. Earnings are not credited to a student's tuition/fees or room and board bill. Students are responsible for submitting time cards in a timely fashion to ensure payment for work performed. A student will not receive payment until all paperwork is completed and received by the Office of Financial Aid.
If you have any questions please contact the Financial Aid Office at 617-879-2443 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Pay Rates for 2017-2018 Academic Year
Students employed in on-campus positions are paid at the rate of $11.00 per hour.
