Student Employment

Working on Campus

We offer work opportunities in a variety of departments, and you can earn up to $3,200 per year working 5 to 20 hours a week.

You’ll work with managers who are concerned for your academic well-being and are flexible in accommodating your class schedule.

A limited number of work students may also qualify for the Federal Work-Study Program. (We cannot guarantee work for all students and cannot guarantee that each student will earn the approved amount each week.)

Weekly Hours Approximate Annual Net Earnings
5 $900
10 $1,700
12 $2,000
15 $2,500
20 $3,200

Earnings are paid biweekly and are applied to your tuition account or paid in cash (BJU personal drawing account deposit or bank direct deposit).

Working on Campus as an International Student

As an international student, you are limited to a maximum of 20 hours per week. You are also subject to additional labor laws.

If you plan to work on campus, BJU will help you apply for a Social Security Number (SSN) after you’ve been in the United States for at least 30 days. In order to qualify for a SSN, you must enter the United States in F-1 student status and have a job offer on campus. You will not be able to work until after you have presented your U.S. Social Security Card to HR Staffing Services.

Students applying for a SSN should pick up a letter of employment and SSN application from HR Staffing Services once you arrive on campus. Transportation off campus to the local Social Security Administration office is available upon request.

If you have any questions, email HR Staffing Services.
