What type of studnet job works best for you? UA offers several types of employment


On-Campus Jobs

On-campus employment is called Student Assistant Employment.  Human Resources Office of Student Employment works with departments across campus to post part-time jobs in a wide range of areas, including office and administrative support, customer service, sales and marketing, program and event planning, library support, research, web design, technical support and more.

Student Assistant jobs are funded through UA departmental budgets, and eligibility is not based on financial need. Eligible students can apply online and interview for available positions, which are posted year-round on the UA Student Jobsite.

Additional student assistant jobs may also be filled directly at the departmental level, depending on the job duties and required skills for such positions. Students can visit administrative offices of various departments across campus to inquire directly about upcoming job opportunities.
UA graduate and undergraduate students are eligible to apply for on-campus jobs once enrolled in a degree-granting program at UA and registered for a minimum number of credit hours. Visit Eligibility Requirements and Job Search Toolkit for more information.

Off-Campus Jobs

Non-University employment or off-campus employment are jobs that are available from local businesses that are interested in hiring UA students, including positions in hospitals, banks, medical and realty offices, retail stores, hotels, restaurants and more. Jobs can vary in required duties and degree of difficulty, from entry-level office or customer service positions to various internship opportunities.

Off-campus jobs are available to all students, regardless of financial need or enrollment status. These jobs can provide valuable field experience and networking opportunities for students seeking early career-related job experience, and are best suited to those who have reliable transportation and time in their schedules to work assigned hours, which may include nights and weekends.

These positions are posted as they become available on the UA Student Jobsite. Jobs posted may list additional skills or education requirements. Off-campus employers hire students directly, and are solely responsible for interviewing and selecting applicants, hours, wages, job duties and work environment for off-campus jobs. Students should thoroughly research off-campus employers before accepting any offer. Visit Job Search Tips for more information.

HR Office of Student Employment makes no particular recommendations regarding off-campus employers, and makes no representations or guarantees about positions posted on the HR Office of Student Employment Jobsite. HR Office of Student Employment is not responsible for the safety, wages, working conditions, or other aspects of off-campus employment. Applicants are urged to perform due diligence in researching employers when applying for or accepting private, off-campus employment.

Additional off-campus jobs are also listed by Financial Aid on myBama. To view these jobs, students must have access to the ‘Student’ tab on the myBama website, and a valid account and CWID number are required.


Help@Home acts as a connection service for UA students looking for flexible employment, in temporary jobs from UA faculty, staff and student parents seeking short-term help in areas like babysitting, tutoring, pet sitting, lawn care, and more.

Interested students can submit an application that includes questions about their relevant experience, skills, qualifications, references, availability and expected pay rate. UA faculty, staff and student parents review these applications, then contact the applicant that best fits their needs to discuss potential employment opportunities.

Students can visit Help@Home for more information on the types of jobs available and tips on submitting an application.
