Off-Campus Work-Study Program

Public and private nonprofit, incorporated agencies working in community service may be eligible to become off-campus employers under the Work-Study Program. Federal regulations, however, specifically prohibit work of a political or religious nature, and jobs that require the student’s affiliation or financial support.

Available off-campus Work-Study positions include a variety of community service and tutoring opportunities.

Agencies that regularly hire Boston University students include local hospitals, museums, state and municipal organizations, environmental organizations, and after-school programs. Our Work-Study students have been employed off campus as research assistants, gallery attendants, accounting clerks, publicity assistants, translators, childcare assistants, legal assistants, and reading tutors. Agencies interested in hiring Work-Study students through this program should review our Off-Campus Policies and Procedures.

Because off-campus placement is limited, students are placed on a first come, first served basis. You may have only one off-campus Work-Study job at a time.
