Office of Student Employment

The Office of Student Employment provides on-campus employment programs for graduate students while enrolled at the University. The office is located in the Human Resources Center on north campus and provides services on a walk-in basis.

Job opportunities for students can be accessed on the Hofstra University portal here. Bulletin Boards listing available jobs are located on the balcony of the Student Center. All student positions are also kept on file in the Office of Student Employment.

Graduate student positions include graduate assistant, graduate assistantship, resident director and tutor. For those students applying for financial assistance, eligibility for the Federal Work-Study program may also be available. For all on-campus graduate student positions, applicants must hold a baccalaureate degree and be accepted as a fully matriculated student in a Masters, Law or Doctoral level program at Hofstra University.

Graduate Assistantships

The graduate assistantship is a part-time position in an on-campus administrative office or student services area that has a compensation package that includes tuition remission. Some jobs also include a stipend or hourly wage. These can be found on the Hofstra University portal here.


A Graduate Fellowship is an offer of a scholarship in the student's academic major which requires the student to work for the scholarship money. The scholarship is only in the form of tuition remission. Please contact your Graduate Program Coordinator for details.
