Financial and Career Support

Arcadia University has resources available for students who want to learn about financial aid, employment options, and how to start preparing for your career during COVID-19.

Financial Aid

Arcadia University remains committed to meeting the economic needs of students. The Office of Financial Aid, which offers valuable resources to support you throughout your time at Arcadia, is reviewing financial aid packages in light of the economic impact COVID-19 might be having on students and their families.

Employment Opportunities

Students work for various Arcadia academic departments or administrative offices. Numerous campus employment positions are funded through the federal work-study program (work-study eligibility required), while others are funded through individual departments (work-study eligibility not required). Student Employment is coordinated by Arcadia’s Office of Career Education located in Knight Hall.

Students who are eligible and would like to complete an application, are newly hired, or would like to check work-study eligibility may contact Students who are currently working that have questions related to payroll, timekeeping, or paychecks can email the Human Resources Payroll Office at
