Off-campus Employers

Student Financial Services partners with non-profit organzations as part of our Federal Workstudy Community Service program. In order to be considered the organization must show that their organization has programs that are designed to improve the quality of life for community residents, particularly low-income individuals, or to solve particular problems related to their needs.

The students do not have to provide a "direct" service. The student must provide services that are designed to improve the quality of life for community residents or to solve particular problems related to those residents' needs. 

Off-campus employers contracted through Temple must submit a contract to the Student Financial Services Office. Organizations wishing to post a job, please email or call 215-204-1404

Students should be emailing SFS at  The email address is only for employers and not students.

Students employed off-campus will be paid by Temple University.  The Federal Workstudy program pays 75% of the student wage using the Federal work-study grant. The employer hiring the student is responsible to pay Temple 25% of the student’s award amount in advance. Students must first come to SFS to get hired  prior to beginning employment. Students should not begin working off-campus until SFS has assured them that they are officially hired into our HR system.

Off-campus employers must monitor student earnings to ensure that students do not earn in excess of their award. An organization may forfeit its eligibility to employ students if students are continually permitted to exceed their awards. If the student exceeds his or her award, the employer will be responsible for 100% of the overaward.
