If you are awarded Federal Work-Study (or Bryant University Employment) as part of your financial aid package, we encourage you to consider these part-time opportunities to help you meet the cost of your education.

Bryant University employment as listed on the Financial Aid Statement is an estimated amount you can earn IF you get a job on campus. This amount does not get deducted from your bill. Student employment and/or the amount of gross earnings cannot be guaranteed. It is your responsibility to secure a position. Students generally are not permitted to hold more than one job on campus. 

A limited number of off-campus tutoring positions are available to Work-Study-eligible students at several area organizations.  You will need your own transportation for these positions. If interested, please contact Andrea Pellegrino at (401) 232-6020 or .

You must complete all paperwork prior to beginning work. If you secure an on-campus job, you must complete and submit to the Office of Financial Aid:

  • a Student Payroll Authorization,
  • a W-4 Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate (federal as well as state), and
  • an I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form. You must have proper identification in original form to complete an I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form. (Photocopies cannot be accepted.)

You may work no more than 20 hours per week during the academic year. Pay rates begin at minimum wage. After employment is secured, you will be paid every two weeks for the hours worked.

The vast majority of part-time student positions on campus will require the student to have eligibility for need-based work-study funds cited on the financial aid award letter. A limited number of positions, however, carrying advanced skills or experience are sometimes open to students not eligible for work-study funds.
A limited number of on-campus student jobs are available to such students (i.e. tutors, research assistants, tele-fundraisers, tennis racket stringers, certified lifeguards, etc.)
If you are a Bryant student, you can view on-campus student job openings online via the myBryant portal. Contact information for all on-campus hiring supervisors is also available there. Make your job hunting a priority for the first weeks of class, as the demand for jobs is high and the field is competitive. It is best to contact supervisors directly, as opposed to merely sending e-mail messages asking about openings.
