Student Wage Employment

On Campus

Student Wage employment is non-need based, and is governed only by university policy and standard wage and labor laws.  Since it is 100% university funded for on-campus jobs, availability can be limited depending on the department.  

To qualify, you must:

  • Be enrolled at least half time
    • undergraduates = 6 hours
    • graduates = 5 hours
  • Not work more than 30 hours per week while school is in session

Some restrictions and exceptions may apply. 

Off Campus 

NAU Student Employment provides a referral service only, and makes no particular recommendations regarding employers.  We make no representations or guarantees about positions posted by this office.  We are not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of off-campus employment.  All hiring and compensation for work performed by students with off-campus employers is handled directly between the student and the employer. 

NAU Student Employment does not perform background checks on employers posting job openings or on students applying for jobs.  Employers and students are encouraged to obtain reference information from each other as needed to establish qualifications, credentials and overall fit between the employer and the student applicant.  Students are urged to perform due diligence in researching employers when applying for or accepting off-campus employment. 

All job openings are posted at the discretion of NAU Student Employment.  We will not post jobs that appear to discriminate against applicants on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, age, national origin, veteran status, sexual orientation, disability or gender.  NAU Student Employment also reserves the right to refuse to post jobs that do not support the interests of the university.
