Work On-Campus

Work On-Campus

Fresno State supports student employment. Working on-campus can serve to offset a portion of tuition costs, and also provide a practical and enriching experience. Studies show that students who work on campus 1-20 hours per week have a higher GPA, increased enrollment retention, and graduation rates than their non-working peers.
