Student Employment

Student Employment Office for On-Campus Jobs

Each year over 2,600 Creighton students help meet their educational expenses by working here at Creighton, both through the Federal Work Study program and University funded employment.   

Student employees serve in a wide variety of positions from intramural referees at soccer games to research assistants in Health Sciences labs.  The person who answers the phone when you call a campus department is often a Creighton student.  The friendly face you see when approaching a receptionistís desk is often a student worker.  They escort you to your car when itís late at night, watch over your toddler in the Child Care Center, put your library books back on the shelves, sort your mail and monitor the safety cameras in the parking lots.  They file your chart when you are seeking treatment in the Dental Clinic or the Medical Center. And donít forget, that personality behind Billy Bluejay is a student worker.


The state of Nebraska minimum wage has increased to $8.00 per hour effective January 1, 2015.  Student wages will be adjusted accordingly.
