50-50 Program

The 50/50 Program is designed to promote the creation of new, on-campus student jobs to allow more opportunities for students to work on campus. These new positions are intended to help students gain meaningful work experience and provide a support system of faculty and staff that aids in student retention.

The 50/50 program will provide 50 percent of the student wage, up to $4.50*, to qualifying positions and students. Positions and students must meet requirements in order to qualify for funding.

*In response to the campus-wide minimum wage increase, the minimum wage for 50/50 designated positions will increase to $10.00 per hour on January 1, 2022. This means that the 50/50 program will provide $5.00 per hour for all 50/50 designated positions beginning January 1, 2022.
