Student Employment

Towson University offers a large campus in a vibrant community that provides a wide variety of on and off-campus student employment opportunities.

Visit the TU Career Center for information on available on and off-campus jobs.

In addition to the job opportunities that are available to all students, we also offer Federal Work-Study Program funds to a portion of our students with high financial need. This program creates additional job opportunities by providing additional funding for these student employees. If we are able to offer you FWS funds, they will be listed on your financial aid award notification. FWS jobs are available on campus or at off-campus tutoring positions. If your award notification includes an FWS award, visit the Federal Work-Study Program for more details.

We have two programs that offer paid and volunteer tutoring opportunities at local schools.  The TUTORS Program offers reading and math tutoring at Govans Elementary.  The America Counts Program offers math tutoring to local middle school students.  (Note:  The America Counts program will not be hiring any additional tutors for the Spring 2020 semester, but plans to resume hiring for Fall 2020.)

Graduate students can also pursue graduate assistantships, which provide stipend pay and tuition waiver benefits. Available positions include research, teaching and administrative positions. 

We also strongly encourage students to pursue our many Internship opportunities, which can provide valuable experience that is relevant to your major/career. Some internships are paid and many provide academic credit. 

In addition to paid positions, TU also offer many opportunities for Service, Engagement, & Leadership including:
