Working on Campus

Looking for a little help making ends meet? Many students supplement their income with part-time or summer employment, both on and off campus. Keep in mind:

  • You are not alone! Many Loyalist students hold part-time jobs and work around their academic schedule
  • The long summer break in most programs (typically four months) allows most students time to earn a significant amount towards their College expenses
  • A two-year College program removes a student from the full-time workforce for only 16 months
