Student Employees and Graduate Assistants

Student payments are not always in the form of employment. The Student Payment Determination Flowchart and the Student Payment – Types document are intended to help guide employing departments in the right direction for whom to contact and next steps.

Student employment positions and graduate assistantships in most departments across campus offer undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to work throughout their time at Illinois State University. Earnings from part-time employment are an important source of financial assistance to students, and the knowledge and work experience gained from campus employment is a significant factor in preparing students for future careers.

Whether students are looking to build their resumes, enhance their studies, or offset expenses, Illinois State offers something for everyone.

Keep in mind that hours are sometimes limited by University policy, Graduate School handbook guidelines, and the Affordable Care Act guidelines.
