What are the benefits of the Student Employment on Campus Program?

The Student Employment on Campus Program is designed with the student in mind. The Program recognizes that academic achievement comes first and for that reason provides flexible scheduling of work hours to accommodate your class timetable. The program provides students with the opportunity to gain practical work experience, often in positions that relate to the student’s field of study.

Does the hiring manager see my Employment on Campus Assessment form?

The Employment on Campus Assessment form is only to confirm that the student meets the financial requirements of the bursary fund. These forms do not get submitted with the rest of the application...

Why are International Students, Second Career Recipients, and Bachelor of Business Administration Students excluded from the Student Employment on Campus bursary fund?

They do not meet the requirements of the program because their tuition does not contribute towards the account that funds the Student Employment on Campus bursary. However, these students can still apply as departments may have the budget to fund the positions.

Can I apply to more than one job on campus?

Students can apply to as many jobs as they are qualified for.
