Student Income Ideas

There comes a time during college that a little earned income can go a long ways. Here are some tips on where to get some extra cash:

On-Campus Employment

Many schools have on-campus employment positions that are not part of the federal work-study program. Some of these positions offer tuition discounts and a wage for your service.


What's nice about on-campus employment is that positions are generally flexible considering your class schedule and needs. Additionally, you can easily get to work, return the class, and then go back to work without having to commute.

Campus Housing Manager

Some schools and private housing units will waive or reduce housing costs if you become a residential manager. You will be required to answer calls, keep up maintenance, and address service issues.


Housing managers can maintain a work schedule that coincides with your academic schedule. Another nice benefit is that your work schedule is at your place of living.

Check the area's student housing units for information. They will likely put you on a waiting list that might be worth something to you in the future.
