Employment on the Shippensburg Campus
Shippensburg University hires a number of students to work part-time on campus. We have begun implementing a new way for students to find which departments are hiring students. There is now an electronic “Job Board” called College Central. To find which departments are currently hiring students, please print out the College Central registration form. Positions include work in administrative and faculty offices, the library, classes, university residence halls, and on the campus grounds.
Once you have registered with College Central as a Shippensburg student, you will be able to access the Job Board. In there, you can find offices that are hiring part-time help (paid by the University/Commonwealth) and jobs that are available to students who have been awarded and are paid through the Federal Work Study (FWS) program. In order to be eligible for a Federal Work Study job, a student must have been awarded Federal Work Study funds in their Financial Aid Award. It is up to the student to contact the department to inquire about the open position.
College Central will also have listings of jobs in the area, internship possibilities, and other job prospects in other parts of the state and throughout the United States, for those potentially looking either for summer work or employment after finishing college.
Reminder: A Free Application for Federal Student Aid [FAFSA] must be filed for Federal workstudy (FWS) and is strongly recommended for all campus employment opportunties.
Additional employment opportunities are available through the Campus Food Service and the Student Association. Students should apply for these jobs directly through those organizations. A FAFSA is not required for campus employment positions.
Please check with each Department to determine their need for work study positions.
