Student job program on campus

We know the main job of a student – is to be a student – so the Student Works employment program offers full-time students with financial need the convenience of an on-campus job that works around their schedule.

Fall & Winter Program (part-time employment)

  • Offers part-time, on-campus employment from late September to late March.
  • Students may work up to 12 hours per week.
  • Apply for Fall/Winter jobs in September.

Spring & Summer Program (full-time employment)

  • Offers full-time on-campus employment between May – August.
  • Students work 32.5 hours per week.
  • Apply for Spring/Summer jobs in March.

What are the wages?

Student Works wages are 100% subsidized by the Financial Aid Bursary budget at Mount Saint Vincent University.

Effective April 1, the hourly rate will increase to $15.00/hour plus 4% vacation pay.

To be eligible to apply for the Student Works program, students must:
