Student Employment

Student Employment provides a centralized location for students to learn about on-campus student employment programs in addition to processing the university’s student payrolls.

The university provides on-campus student employment opportunities to eligible students through the following:

  • Federal Work-Study Program (FWS)/Community Work-Study (CWS)
  • Student Assistant Employment Program

These programs provide a variety of part-time employment opportunities throughout the university. FWS/CWS is part of a student’s financial aid package and must be applied for by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Johnson & Wales University offers on-campus positions as well as off-campus community work-study service positions to enable eligible students to earn their FWS awards.

Student employees must maintain accurate contact information with Student Employment. This is especially important for tax purposes since Form W-2s are mailed to the address on file with Human Resources & Payroll.

For Student Employment location, hours and contact information, please consult the appropriate JWU Directory.
