All on-campus student employment positions are now posted in Cardinal Career Link (

Many Ball State University Students work on campus. An on-campus job provides an opportunity to earn extra money, meet people, develop transferable job skills, learn time-management skills, gain experience, and get more involved on campus. Studies indicate that students who are active on campus perform better in the classroom and have greater success in post-undergraduate endeavors.

All campus student employment is coordinated through the Career Center. To be eligible for employment, students must be currently working toward a Ball State degree and satisfy additional eligibility conditions.  Students who continue to work after completion of a Ball State University degree or after having been academically disqualified, will be considered to be working in violation of their employment agreement with the university which requires them to be a continuing, degree-seeking student and not in compliance with the conditions above.  Ball State University uses the Federal E-Verify authentication process to confirm that those hired by the university are eligible under the law to hold employment within the United States. 

Students should review the Student Handbook, available online, to affirm their rights and responsibilities under university policy.
