student employment

Working at an on-campus job is ideal for many students: it can provide extra income while in school, give students another opportunity to connect to the campus community, and be a good way to gain job experience.

To find an on-campus job, start by registering for the online job board. While most on-campus jobs are posted here, some jobs are filled through word of mouth. If you know that you would like a job in a particular department, be sure to check in with them to inquire about possible openings. If you are not sure who to contact in a department, ask the Career Resources Center for assistance. 


Some students will notice a work-study award on their financial aid statement. Whether a student has a work-study award or not does not affect their ability to work on campus. The majority of positions offered at SFAI are available to both work-study and non-work-study qualified students.

F-1 and J-1 students are eligible to work on campus for up to 20 hours per week during the regular academic year and full-time during winter, spring, and summer breaks. For more information on eligibility and securing a Social Security number, see Employment Options.
