Work study and Job Opportunities
The federal government, state of Texas and Schreiner University provide programs for students to work while they are enrolled in school. Part time work study positions are available both on and off campus to eligible students.
How do you know if you are eligible?
The Office of Financial Aid must award work study to a student. Students must then apply for various positions through the Human Resources office. Awarded students are eligible to earn up to $1500 per academic year. The award does not guarantee a position. Students must interview and obtain a job before they are paid an hourly wage. Checks are cut bi-weekly to students based on approved time sheets.
Freshmen and transfers will receive further information on this program during the orientation process.
Whether you are an incoming freshman or a current student, if you were not awarded work study and would like the opportunity to work on campus, contact the financial aid office at firstname.lastname@example.org, call us at 800-343-4919 or 830-792-7217, or come by the office in the Welcome Center.

The Office of Financial Aid at Schreiner University is committed to assisting students in obtaining the best financial aid award possible. However, it is the student’s responsibility to comply with all requirements necessary to complete the financial aid process. In addition, the Office of Financial Aid is not responsible for the student's financial obligations to Schreiner University. Each student must verify their account balance and make arrangements for any amounts not covered by financial aid.
