On-Campus Employment

On-campus jobs are available in a number of departments throughout the MIAD community. They include: Galleries, Computer Labs, Library, Student Union, Dining Cafe, Maintenance, Residence Hall, Learning Resource Center, Reception Desk, Printmaking, Photography, 3-D, and Sculpture Labs, Career Services, Financial Aid, Admissions, Communications, Institutional Advancement, Student Services, Pre-College, and others. The demand for on-campus jobs is high. We cannot guarantee an on-campus job to all students who are seeking employment. We encourage students to be open with their options. Students who are willing to work in a variety of departments will have a better chance of securing an on-campus job. Students are allowed to work a maximum of 20 hours per week (total of all jobs on-campus) during the academic year.

On-Campus Job Postings
On-campus jobs are posted near the suite where Career Services is located –Suite 275. On-campus positions can also be found on CanvassCareers.

Federal Work Study (FWS) Program
The Federal Work Study program provides need-based financial aid to students that allows them to earn money by working part-time on MIAD’s campus. When a student is eligible for FWS, his or her chances of being hired on-campus may increase. Questions regarding FWS eligibility should be directed to the Financial Aid office.

All on-campus employees clock-in hours through our on-line ADP payroll system. Your supervisor will train you on how to use the system.
