UMM encourages its students who desire work to apply for jobs both on and off campus, gaining real world experience. There are a number of different types of jobs offered by UMM including work in Admissions, the Business Office, Murdock Fitness and Aquatics Center, Residential Education and Commuter Life, and with our partners, like Sodexo. Many of our students are also employed by local businesses.


Federal Work-Study Program

FWS is a Title IV student aid program allowing eligible students to earn money to help meet educational expenses. Following submission of the FAFSA, students are awarded a FWS maximum earnings award as part of the financial aid package. Suggested hours per week are included on the work authorization. Awards are limited by funding availability and student eligibility. A variety of FWS jobs are offered on campus in many different offices.

Departmental Work Funding

Departmental funds for student employment are also available for qualifying students. Students apply directly to the hiring departments and work awards are made by the departments based on job qualifications and availability of funds. It is not necessary to apply for federal financial aid to receive this funding.

Finding an On Campus Job

The most effective way to find a job is to contact potential supervisors from the Listing of Departments to gather information about jobs and arrange interviews. Many departments post job openings on bulletin boards. Students may also contact the Financial Aid Office to inquire about job openings on campus. Students must reapply for funding and jobs each year.

Applying for Employment Funding

Many job opportunities are available to eligible students. Application for funds is an annual process and is the first step in securing student employment. Participation in the work-study program is contingent upon student eligibility for funding, availability of funding, limited placements, and completion of the paperwork that authorizes employment.

U.S. students seeking a FWS position must apply for federal financial aid using the FAFSA. The application process must be complete before the students can be paid FWS funds.

FWS recipients will receive a work authorization indicating maximum allowable earnings. The student must sign the authorization, obtain their supervisor’s signature, and return the work authorization to the Financial Aid Office.

Any student may apply for UMM departmental funding by simply applying for a job with a University department. Departments may use their own funds when a position cannot be filled by a FWS-eligible student or when the position is critical to the University’s operation.

Students with FWS or departmental jobs must be matriculated in a UMM degree program and registered for at least six credits per semester. Rare exceptions are allowed with departmentally funded positions. For example, a non-matriculated student taking fewer than six credits may receive departmental funding for one semester, but funding will be terminated at the end of that semester unless the student matriculates and registers for at least six credits.

Many local businesses in Machias hire UMM students and work to accommodate their class schedules. The Office of Career Services often posts and informs students of different job and internship opportunities in the Machias area.
