The following are some of our most frequently-asked questions regarding Student Employment at Brockport:
Federal Work-Study is a form of student financial aid. You may view your financial aid by signing on to Web Banner and going to the Financial Aid menu.
If Work-Study is in your financial aid package and you have “accepted” it, you may now apply for Work-Study jobs. Other students who have not been awarded Work-Study should apply for Non-Work-Study jobs.
All jobs are advertised on Handshake, an online database of on-campus, off-campus, internships, and full and part-time jobs.
See also BASC jobs site. BASC runs our dining services and is one of largest employers on campus.
If you apply for financial aid and you check off that you are interested, you are automatically considered for a form of aid called Federal Work-Study. If eligible, a dollar amount will appear on your financial aid letter.
A third of the students hired each year do not receive Work-Study. If you are in this category, visit Handshake for a listing of non-Work-Study jobs. Remember that, since any Brockport student is eligible to apply, jobs are competitive.
We advertise jobs continuously. Most campus departments begin hiring in the summer and continue hiring into the fall semester, but many begin advertising in the spring for fall openings. These supervisors will be interviewing and hiring as candidates apply. Jobs are posted and filled year-round, so if you are not successful at first, be persistent. Check often and ask us for suggestions.

Graduate students All student employment options are open to graduate students. In addition, graduate students may qualify for teaching or research graduate assistantships. Information about these positions is available from your major department, and on Handshake.
International students have additional requirements and limitations.
All campus jobs pay at least the Federal minimum wage. We operate evaluation and wage-step processes, so it is possible to earn more based on performance and longevity. Most jobs schedule eight to 12 hours per week. Working more than 20 hours per week may hurt grades, so we normally restrict students employed on campus to no more than 20 hours per week.
Students get a paycheck every two week and we encourage direct deposit of your paycheck for on-campus jobs. This ensures you can receive paychecks over semester breaks and in a timely fashion. Direct deposit forms are available online.
This requirement promotes the employment of Federal Work-Study students in community service activities and provides an opportunity for an institution. This would include students employed in projects that teach civics in schools, raise awareness of government functions or resources or increase civic participation.
