Work Study Positions

Each semester, USC Thornton hires students with Work Study Awards for part-time positions in several on-campus departments. These range from office positions to IT assistance to ushering for events.

  • Students must have a Federal Work Study Award (a form of financial assistance)
  • Applicants do not need to be music students. Any eligible USC undergraduate or grad student with a Work Study Award may apply.

Representatives from USC Thornton will be on hand at the USC Work Study Job Fair (Friday, Aug. 17th from 1-3PM) to answer questions and take applications.
