Part-time Student Employment

The Part-time Student Employment Program supports UofL students in finding part-time jobs (full-time in summer, if desired) to assist in covering educational and living expenses. The goal is to connect students with employers who offer jobs that are flexible and can accommodate students’ evolving class schedules. To qualify for the Part-time Student Employment Program, a job must be part-time and the location must be within the following seven Kentucky and Indiana counties to allow for feasible commutes:



  • Jefferson County, KY 
  • Bullitt County, KY
  • Oldham County, KY
  • Shelby County, KY
  • Spencer County, KY
  • Clark County, IN  
  • Floyd County, IN
