Student Employment

Types of Non-Work Study Employment

Non-Work Study, or regular, positions are available for those that did not file for financial aid or were not awarded Federal Work Study. Students that would like the opportunity to work on campus or in the surrounding area may search Handshake. The hiring department/employer pays your full wage.

  • On Campus refers to hourly, lump sum or stipend positions that can be within any office or department at UW-Green Bay.
  • Off Campus refers to positions posted by area businesses and private individuals.

On Campus Regular Employment

On Campus Employment is available to students carrying at least one UW-Green Bay credit per semester. There are many jobs on-campus that do not require a Federal Work Study award. You may find these in Handshake. All duties, responsibilities and wage rates remain the same as a Federal Work Study job, but the source of funding is different. For On Campus Regular Employment, the hiring department is responsible for paying 100% of a student's wages (not the Federal Government).

The best selection of on-campus jobs is approximately July 1 through September 15. UW-Green Bay has December graduation and as a result, some jobs open up for the spring semester. If a student is unsuccessful in securing on-campus employment during the fall semester many jobs open up between December 1 and February 1.

On campus employers are encouraged to utilize Handshake, but it is not the only way for them to advertise their open positions. Using Handshake, jobs are posted at the request of individual departments. However, students can also monitor individual department websites, especially when seeking work within a major or field of study.

Jobs on campus can be found in many departments. They can last for one semester or for multiple years depending upon a student’s school schedule and/or the department's budget. All on-campus employment is at-will employment.

Off Campus Regular Employment

UW-Green Bay uses Handshake to posts area off campus part-time and seasonal opportunities for our students. These positions range from private family requests for babysitters or lawn care assistants to area companies such as the YMCA, City of Green Bay, Radisson Hotel & Conference Center and more. These positions can also be found on the job board outside Student Services suite 1100. They are posted on yellow paper.

Students should keep in mind that these types of positions are not regulated by UW-Green Bay. This means the organization or person(s) can schedule students based on the needs of the organization and not necessarily based on the student's class schedule. UW-Green Bay encourages students to use common sense when considering these types of positions and remember that academics come first.
