The Federal College Work-Study program provides employment opportunities for students in various offices on campus and in community service agencies to students who are invited to participate because of financial need.
If you qualify for the (Federal) College Work-Study program at the University of Buffalo you may select from a variety of jobs to meet your interests, skills and career paths.
Most student jobs are advertised on BullsEye. Once you are notified and you have accepted College Work-Study support, set up an account on BullsEye to upload your resume and apply for a job.
Your goal is to work reasonable hours while classes are in session and have your funds last all year.

You can work up to 12 hour/week while classes are in session. You can work up to 29 hours/week during breaks and holidays providing you are performing necessary work duites and you have funds remaining, including any student assistant (SA) appointments.

Your time sheet is used to create your paycheck, so it's important to get your time sheet in on time. When your hiring paperwork is on file with Human Resources — you and your supervisor have completed the forms — you can start entering the time you've worked online. Your supervisor has to approve your online time sheet so make sure you keep an accurate record.
Your employment records for College Work-Study and your academic records are different. When you move or leave UB, make sure your mailing address is correct so you will receive your tax forms.
