Minneapolis College offers a number of paid job opportunities, both on campus and in the community, to help you earn money to offset the cost of higher education. Positions are available to all students, including international and undocumented students.

Participating in the student employment program can also give you valuable hands-on experience in your field before graduating and a head-start on creating an appealing resume. Working on campus or in the community will provide unique learning opportunities outside the classroom, as well as the convenience of being able to tailor your work schedule around class time.
