Opportunities for master’s students to earn experience and income

As a student at the University of Rochester, you may be eligible for a number of on-campus opportunities that can help you earn income to help offset your education and/or living expenses (although they do not provide tuition waivers).  These opportunities are available to both domestic and international students (although international students have some limitations regarding the total number of hours of services per week). For domestic students, these opportunities may also include work experiences at other local colleges and organizations. Lists of available opportunities are created and circulated throughout the year.
