Student Employment

Carroll's campus employment program gives students the opportunity to receive valuable work experience, while earning a paycheck! Students have the opportunity to work in a department that aligns with their career interests, and develop important skills that can be applied to future job opportunities.

Students who are eligible to work on campus will be notified when they receive their Final Financial Award Notification. Employment opportunities allow you to work on campus or at an off campus community service site, and earn a monthly paycheck while you attend Carroll full time. In general, students work 6-12 hours a week and earn between $2,000-$2,250 a year. Campus earnings are paid to the student on a bi-weekly basis.
