Who can be employed?
Baylor University students who are eligible to work in the United States may apply for on-campus jobs. Federal Work-Study (FWS) eligible students have priority for hiring. FWS eligibility is determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
NOTE: The following are not eligible to be student employees at Baylor University:
- Incoming students who have not yet begun classes
- Former or graduated students
- Expelled students
- Non-degree seeking students
- Individuals who are only taking Continuing Education courses
We give priority for on-campus employment to students who have completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and who have accepted Federal Work-Study (FWS) eligibility. FWS is a financial aid program.
Several factors dictate how many hours per week a student can work on campus.
As a student, you are NOT allowed to:
- work during times that you are scheduled to be in class,
- earn more than your eligibility amount and
- more than 20 hours per week while enrolled in classes.
This is a Baylor policy intended to protect your academic pursuits.
Eligibility for Community Service Jobs
Community Service Work-Study Program jobs are designated jobs available only to those students who are eligible for Federal Work-Study (FWS). Students who are awarded Federal Work-Study and are interested in working with local non-profit organizations to provide services to benefit the local community may apply for these jobs.
