Summer Employment

Summer Employment is Different than Fall and Spring

Many Ferris students decide to stay and work during the summer months. There are several differences between employment during the academic year and summer. Students wishing to find summer employment may access summer job postings beginning in April. Some of the most notable differences are:

During the academic year students must be enrolled for at least 6 credits to work. During summer students must be registered for 6 credits OR be registered for 6 or more credits for the upcoming fall.

During the academic year students are limited to 24 hours per week. During the summer students may work up to 40 hours per week if approved by their supervisor.

During the academic year students are awarded work study based on a first come, first served basis. During the summer, work study funds are often very limited. Work study is awarded to students demonstrating need who are returning to jobs they held during the academic year. We will also refer to the work study request list.
