Working on Campus

The federally funded Work-Study Program provides part-time jobs on the University campus for full-time students who have financial need and who must earn part of their educational expenses. Work-Study also allows students the opportunity to gain work experience at Ozarks. An average work load is usually 8-10 hours per week. The number of hours may vary depending on financial need and government allocation. Students may earn up to $4,900 per year.

If you'd like to work part-time as under the work-study program, you'll need to first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available online at

Once you're approved for the program, you'll work with the Financial Aid Office to receive your work assignments. These are just a few examples of work-study positions available on campus:

  • Library Circulation Desk
  • Computer Services Helpdesk
  • Campus Grounds worker
  • Campus Cafeteria
