On-Campus Employment: All NNU students are eligible to apply for part-time work on campus. A variety of on-campus departments hire students, such as Facilities, Learning Commons, Bookstore, and others. All students are encouraged to apply for positions of interest by following the directions listed in each job posting located on the Career Center's website. First-time students are encouraged to work no more than 12 hours per week at any job or combination of jobs on campus.
A number of on-campus positions are funded in part by Federal College Work-Study program funds. The work study award at the time of application does not guarantee a job, it simply indicates a student's eligibility for funding. Work study eligibility is determined by the Office of Financial Aid personnel upon review of the student's FAFSA information, cost of attendance, and other aid awarded, and is communicated to the student in an award letter.
America Reads: The America Reads program makes funds available to institutions of higher education in order to pay university students to tutor elementary students in reading. NNU works with several schools in the community assisting with their reading programs. The student must be eligible for Federal College Work-Study funds to participate in this program. Eligibility is determined by the Office of Financial Aid personnel upon review of the student's FAFSA information, cost of attendance, and other aid awarded, and is communicated to the student in an award letter. NNU pays the student on a monthly basis.
Part-time Off-Campus Employment: Numerous students secure their own arrangements for part-time off-campus employment in the local community. Students are encouraged to review postings located on the Career Center's website to identify part-time off-campus opportunities.
