Student Employment Home

The opportunity for a student to work is a fundamental part of the University of Portland's philosophy, based firmly in the conviction that a meaningful and rewarding work experience is an educational benefit of lasting value. For this reason, the University designates significant funding each year for student employment. While some students qualify for the Federal Work Study program, most students work on campus earning Student Employment Institutional Funds.

The University of Portland Student Employment Program is intended to:

  • Provide students with financial support for doing worthwhile work
  • Meet the needs of the University and other on-campus campus employers to perform day-to-day operations
  • Offer students valuable learning experiences to complement college and career goals
  • Help students develop good work habits and a positive attitude toward work
  • Prepare students for life beyond the University

Graduating Seniors

Seniors who are graduating this spring are eligible to work through May 15. 

If a student is graduating at the end of summer, they must be enrolled in at least 6 credits total (both summer sessions combined) to be eligible to work through the summer. If a student has completed all their necessary credits to graduate at the end of summer session one, they must stop working no later than July 15. If a student is taking classes in summer session two, they can work through August 15.
