Student employment is a form of financial aid. Students may work under the Federal Work Study (FWS) program. FWS eligibility is indicated as a part of your financial aid package. Students not eligible under the FWS program may be eligible for work under AU Employment (AUE).
Students interested in part-time work on campus or in an FWS job off campus must contact Human Resources to start the employment process. You may do so during the summer or after you arrive on campus.
For more information, visit Human Resources, stop by the Human Resources office in Decker Hall, Rm. 11, or contact them by phone at (765) 641-4132.
Career Development Center
The career development center staff helps students assess interests, values, skills, and personality type to research majors and career opportunities. Workshops are provided to learn the skills necessary to make good decisions about a major, building a résumé, or searching for an internship or full-time job. The office offers opportunities to participate in on-campus recruitment and job fairs.
For information, visit Career Development Center. You can also contact the Career Development Center at (765) 641-4196, or stop by their office in Decker 213.
Counseling Services provides an atmosphere of comprehensive services to meet your needs and gives specific attention to your spiritual, emotional, and psychological well-being. The office is open from 8 a.m.–5 p.m., with some evening hours available during the academic year.
Individual, premarital, couple, family, and group counseling are available, as well as assessment and referral in crisis situations. New students who have received prior mental health services are encouraged to contact the Office of Counseling Services before arriving on campus so that helpful information and resources can be provided.

Health services are available to all traditional undergraduate students who have submitted a health record before Semester I classes begin. The health record form is available from the Office of Admissions or from Student Health Services or the housing website.
The office is open Monday-Friday, 9–11:30 a.m. and 1–4:30 p.m., and is staffed by two registered nurses. The campus physician maintains limited hours on campus. Health Services provides first-level care and treatment of usual illnesses and accidents, diagnostics and referral services, limited counseling, nutritional advice, and certain medications and supplies, as well as comprehensive health education activities that promote a healthy lifestyle. Unless it is an emergency situation, students are asked to phone ahead at (765) 641-4222 to schedule a sameday appointment. This will allow students to avoid a long wait. Walk-ins may be asked to schedule for a later appointment.
Other specific services that are provided include blood pressure monitoring; throat cultures, when needed; tuberculin skin tests; certain immunizations, including travel requirements for Tri-S; employment physicals; referrals to other allied health agencies; and referrals for diagnostics (laboratory and x-rays).
Student Health Services operates from revenue generated by a fee of $30.00 per student, per semester, which covers, in part, the cost of the expenses associated with this service. New for the 2011-2012 school year undergraduate students under age 26 and enrolled for a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester are provided basic accident only insurance at a cost of $5.00 per student per semester. A maximum medical benefit of $10,000 per accident is payable after a $25 per incident deductible. This coverage provides benefits secondary to family insurance. For additional information or claims procedures, contact Human Resources on campus in Decker Hall 11.
In addition to the services provided by Health Services, University Police/Security Services provides a team of certified EMTs.
