Baylor University students who are eligible to work in the United States may compete for on-campus jobs. Federal Work-Study (FWS) eligible students have priority through the first three weeks of class of the fall semester. Please be aware that that number of students who qualify for FWS is larger than the number of available positions. All students will not be employed. If you decline your FWS award in order to receive another type of aid, you are limited to loans and will no longer be eligible to work on campus for the remainder of the current academic year.
You may begin the job search as soon as you have registered for classes, you have been notified of your eligiblity for the upcoming award period, and available positions are posted.
We give priority for on-campus employment to students who have completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and who have accepted Federal Work-Study (FWS) eligibility. FWS is a financial aid program.
The Student Financial Aid Office sets a date (usually three weeks into the fall semester) when on-campus employment will be opened to other Baylor University students who are eligible to work in the United States and do not qualify for FWS. The FWS priority deadline for fall 2016 is September 12, 2016.
Community service designated jobs are available only to those students who are eligible for Federal Work-Study (FWS).
