Student Employment

Students at the University of Pennsylvania have access to a wide variety of work opportunities, made centrally available through the Office of Student Employment in Student Financial Services. In this section, aided students can learn how to use a work-study award they’ve received as part of their financial aid package, and all students can learn about employment opportunities available beyond work-study. Staff and faculty can also find resources about creating jobs in their departments and relevant student employment policies and procedures.
