Student Employment

One of the best ways to get involved at Belmont is by working on campus! On-Campus Employment provides students with financial support in pursuit of their academic goals and opportunities for academic, administrative and business-related job experience. The job duties and responsibilities of student employees vary greatly, and may or may not be related to the student’s field of study.

Belmont offers a job fair during Welcome Week in August. If you're unable to attend, available job openings will always be posted at


There are two different kinds of Student Employment available:

Belmont Student Employees (BSE)
Belmont Student Employees (BSE) make up the majority of student workers on campus and are a valuable asset to the greater university community.  BSE student wages are solely paid for by the department for which they work.

Federal Work Study (FWS)
Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a financial aid program that allows students to work on-campus or with approved off-campus community service employers to earn money to pay for college expenses.  Eligible students are awarded FWS when they complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Being awarded FWS with financial aid can help a student be eligible for part-time jobs, both on- and off-campus, that they may not have otherwise been eligible for.  The FWS program encourages employment in community service and in fields related to your major of study.  There are many FWS jobs available to choose from, but unlike BSE positions, FWS jobs are funded through Student Financial Services.
