Students may be employed by Vanderbilt through Federal Work Study or the Insititutional Employment programs.
All current Vanderbilt students have access to the online job bank called HireADore. Departments are encouraged to list on-campus opportunities.
The Federal Work Study Program (FWSP) is a federally funded program designed to provide part-time employment opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students with demonstrated financial need. FWS funds allocated to the university will pay a share of the student's wages and the university departmental employer pays the remaining cost share of wages. Once the student's FWS allocation is expended, the student will be switched to an Institutional Employment assignment and the department will be 100% responsible for the wages paid. Departments and students are notified when this occurs.
All Vanderbilt University students are eligible to seek and obtain student Institutional Employment (IE) positions. Wages for Institutional Employment positions are not subsidized by FWSP; the employing department pays 100% of the student's wages.

Undergraduate and all international students may not work more than 19 hours per week, inclusive of all positions, while school is in session.
Graduate/ Professional students may not work more than 29.5 hours per week, inclusive of all positions, while school is in session. Academic programs may have additional restrictions on maximum number of hours worked weekly.
