Find a Student Job

Finding a Part-Time Job

To identify job opportunities that best fit your interests, skills, and class schedule, search for part-time jobs on JobX, the University’s student employment job posting system containing both on- and off-campus job listings. The number of part-time jobs available will increase as the semester begins.  

A normal work week is 20 to 25 hours, although some students work up to 30 hours a week. Most on-campus jobs allow students to arrange their work schedules around their classes. Students are not permitted to work during scheduled classes or exams. Minimum wage in the State of Florida is currently $11.00 per hour. 

Work Programs at UM

All full-time, degree-admitted and enrolled students are eligible to apply for jobs under the Student Assistant (non-Federal Work Study) employment program.  

Federal Work Study (FWS) is a federally funded financial aid program awarded to students based on their eligibility determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and other financial aid criteria. Only students who have been offered FWS in their financial aid package can apply for these types of jobs. FWS students are awarded a specific amount, and the federal government subsidizes the wages to the employer. For additional information on the Federal Work Study program, visit                                                         

Planning on Working? Here Are Next Steps: 

  • Bring required documents with you. Federal law requires that all new student employees present supporting documentation to demonstrate their eligibility to work in the United States. Examples of acceptable documentation to bring include a valid U.S. passport OR a driver’s license AND social security card or birth certificate. Additional documentation is required if you are an international student, such as presenting your I-20 and I-94.
  • Accept your Federal Work Study award in CaneLink if you received a Federal Work Study award.
