Employment on Campus & Part-time Jobs in the Community

A part-time job is a great way to earn money but also gain experience and build skills for future employment. This page provides links to help you connect with employment opportunities on campus as well as in the West Chester community. The Financial Aid Office manages all student employment programs (i.e., Federal Work Study) that are a part of your financial aid package. Some of the offices listed below may employ students for work study and other positions, but all questions about work study should be directed to Financial Aid.
