Student employment is an important part of financial aid awards at the University of St. Thomas. St. Thomas students earn more than $3 million in a combination of federal, state and university funds each year. On-campus work opportunities allow the university to deliver necessary services, help students offset education expenses, and provide valuable work experiences.
The University of St. Thomas gives all students the opportunity to work on campus, regardless of financial need. However, St. Thomas cannot guarantee employment for every student. Students who qualify for need-based funds are given priority for student jobs and will have an estimate of potential earnings included in their award notice. This estimate is based on a student working an average of 10-12 hours each week during the school year at a rate of no less than $12.50 per hour. Students may ultimately work more or less than this estimate depending on their class schedule and employer’s needs.
