  • If you have a Federal Work Study award, you can apply for Work Study positions On and Off-Campus and can also apply for On-Campus positions that do not require Federal Work Study.
  • If you did not not qualify for Federal Work-Study, you are still eligible to apply for On-Campus positions through the Institutional Student Employment (Non-Work-Study) Program.
  • On and Off-Campus Federal Work Study and Institutional Student Employment Program positions are listed on UMass Boston Career Services Online website
  • Student Employment Services also works with local employers to notify students of Part-Time Off-Campus employment opportunities in the area.

About these services

Student Employment Services (SES) uses the UMass Boston Career Services Online website to list all of the opportunities available in the Federal Work-Study and Institutional Student Employment programs, including community service opportunities.

The Federal Work-Study Community Service Program is limited to local nonprofit agencies offering community service positions. The program funds 75 percent of the student's wages, offering off-campus nonprofit organizations an opportunity to provide community service jobs for students at a fraction of the cost.

The Part-Time Job Program, on the other hand, is open to a broader array of employers. Please remember that the listed companies do not have any affiliations with UMass Boston, unless it is an Off Campus Work Study position. While we make every effort to make sure the information is from secured sources, please use your discretion when reviewing employers and their employment opportunities.



Student Employment Services reserves the right to modify and update Student Employment guidelines, regulations, policies and procedures, as needed and without notice, to comply with governmental and University regulations.
