Student Employment

Work-study is a student employment program that allows eligible students to work on campus in a variety of jobs with flexible hours. Federal, State and institutional funds are invested in employment programs that allow students to work up to 20 hours per week. Wages vary according to the job, but most start at the minimum-wage rate. In order to be eligible for work-study funds, students must complete the FAFSA, have an adequate GPA, and be enrolled full-time.


MAVworks is a work-study program funded by Colorado Mesa University. It is open to all eligible Colorado Mesa University students. There is an advertised application day each fall for these funds, usually during the last week of August. If you are interested, please contact the Financial Aid office for more information.

Student Assist

Student assist positions are open to any student. The student does not need to have work-study to be eligible.

Work-Study / Student Employment Job Listing

The Financial Aid office provides a job listing that is updated at the beginning of each semester. This provides a resource for student to begin looking for jobs on campus, but is not inclusive of all jobs on campus. If you are interested in working with a particular department, please contact them directly for any openings.
