At Embry-Riddle, many of our students work part-time. Working while in college not only helps you finance your education but also assists in developing essential job skills.

Generally, it's not a good idea for new students or freshmen to work too many hours while adjusting to college life and trying to achieve a satisfactory grade point average. However, students can earn $4,300 per academic year by just working 10 hours a week!

The Student Employment Office can help you locate on- and off-campus jobs.

On-Campus Jobs

  • Jobs can be found in the library, tutoring center, gym, dining hall, flight line, labs, and many other offices and departments.
  • On-campus jobs are available regardless of financial need. 
  • For information on the Federal Work-Study (FWS) need-based employment program, visit our Federal Work-Study page.
  • You must be registered for classes in order to search for on-campus jobs on the Student Employment website on ERNIE.
  • Apply for jobs that match your abilities or interests and work with your school schedule.
  • Wages are not applied to your university account to pay ERAU charges. Paychecks are mailed or direct deposited (if enrolled) into your personal banking account every two weeks for hours worked.

Off-Campus Jobs

We receive job vacancies from off-campus employers throughout the academic year. Students looking to work off-campus may view job postings on Handshake.

When applying for an off-campus employment opportunity, take extra precautions and research the employer before exchanging personal information, including bank account information. For more information about job scams, please go to the Federal Trade Commission Job Scam webpage.
