About the program
The Work Study program is designed to help students with demonstrated financial need find jobs on or near campus with flexible work schedules to fit in around class timetables.
How it works
If you are accepted to participate in the Work Study program, you can apply for the Work Study jobs listed on myFuture. You apply directly to the employers and get paid by the employers for your work.
The student application opens in July for work starting at the beginning of the fall term.
|Current Process||New Process as of 2020-2021|
|Students apply in Minerva to be Work Study eligible. Student Aid decisions are published on a roster of Student ID#s by term for all students and employers to consult, which presents confidentiality concerns.||Students apply in Minerva to be Work Study eligible. Student Aid decisions are displayed on the student’s Minerva application. Students have the ability to produce a Work Study Confirmation letter. The letter will include the approved start and end dates for each applicable term to share with prospective employers, valid for 30 days and with the ability to reproduce as needed. Student privacy around financial need is maintained, as students control who they share their Work Study eligibility with.|
Work Study job opportunities are posted on a Student Aid website. Our office controls postings going up and down at the request of the employer. As a consequence, students may be applying for jobs that are no longer available.
Work Study job opportunities are posted in myFuture, the platform managed by Career & Planning Services (CAPS), and where all student opportunities exist in one place. Work Study jobs will be specially flagged so Work Study eligible students can identify the priority bank of jobs dedicated to them. Employers control postings going up and down so they remain current.

- University Budget
- Ministère de l’Éducation
