Student Employment

Looking for a job while you are in school? 

All eligible students have the opportunity to participate in student employment programs at WBU. Students can gain valuable work experience and earn money to supplement their time at Wayland through student employment.

Three types of student employment programs are available:  Federal Work-Study, Texas College Work-Study, and Institutional Student Employment. To participate in Federal Work- Study or Texas College Work Study, a student must have a Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) form on file for the current year.

Available student employment positions are determined by the need for assistance in various offices as well as available funding. Students seeking employment should contact their campus of primary attendance for information regarding student employment positions available.   

The Office of Financial Aid keeps a Student Employment Department list that includes offices that generally offer student employment positions. Check with the Office of Financial Aid about positions that may be available. Students seeking employment should contact the hiring departments directly.

Hiring department managers should contact the Student Employment Coordinator at, and provide the student's name, PowerCampus ID, and max hours for student. Work agreements will be emailed to hiring manger for signatures and agreements should be returned to the Office of Financial Aid. 

Generally, students may work up to 20 hours a week at the current minimum wage. Time worked is reported on a time sheet, which is issued by the Office of Financial Aid. Time sheets should be emailed to the Student Employment Coordinator at on the 15th and last day of each month.
