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.
