Student Employment

BSU strives to offer students a variety of employment opportunities that develop relevant skills, provide a reliable source of income, and has flexibility to accommodate the student’s course and extra-curricular schedules.

Eligibility

To be eligible to work on campus, you must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits during the academic year.  If you drop below 6 credits, your employment will be terminated.  Non-matriculated students, such as PSEO students, are not eligible to work on campus.  To work over the semester break or the summer, you must verify that you are enrolled for the following semester.
