Student Jobs on Campus

Making It Work—and Getting Paid for It!

Working on campus is a way to build skills, gain experience, and help to pay for your education (or simply earn cash to live on). There are two types of student employment at Wentworth:

  • Federal work study – Provided by Wentworth and the U.S. government through financial aid, federal work study is designed to help first- and second-year students meet educational expenses by working while attending classes. Juniors and seniors are eligible for WIT Work, which follows the same guidelines and policies as federal work study.
  • Leopardwork – The Leopardwork Program is funded entirely by Wentworth; financial need is not a determining factor for eligibility. Students wishing to apply for a Leopardwork job must be enrolled at least half-time in a degree program, maintain satisfactory academic progress, and be eligible to work in the U.S.

Getting Started

  • To work on campus, you must complete the following documentation prior to your start date. Failure to complete your I-9 in the required timeframe is against the law and may lead to your award being rescinded.

International Students

International students and students who are not permanent U.S. residents are required to secure a letter of clearance from the International Services Department prior to securing a job. Contact International Student Services during open office hours:

  • Monday: 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday: 1:30 - 3:30 p.m.
