Roosevelt University is committed to offering an environment for working and learning in which students are treated with respect, dignity, and equal opportunity. University employment promotes student engagement, strengthens connections to the Roosevelt community, enhances student life and success, provides professional development and training opportunities, offers service and experiential learning along with financial support. It is the policy of Roosevelt University to employ current Roosevelt University students in appropriate and available part-time student positions. All student employment positions are available exclusively to current Roosevelt University students registered for at least six undergraduate credit hours or at least 3 graduate level credit hours. The Student Employment Program is managed by the Office of Career Development in conjunction with Human Resources and Financial Aid Services (for those students who qualify for Federal Work Study).

Students who are interested in on-campus employment (including students who have been awarded the Federal Work Study grant) can search, locate, and apply to positions on our online campus job board and system, Handshake. All students must apply for positions through Handshake in order to be eligible for any Student Employment positions.
