Tulane students don’t have to venture off campus to begin building their careers. The university is setting the standard nationally for providing students with ample opportunities to earn extra income through part-time work. In a new study conducted by The Student Loan Report, Tulane topped a list of 150 private colleges that offer students part-time, non-federal work-study jobs.

The study noted that, during the 2015-2016 academic year, Tulane provided 114 work-study jobs with each position accruing an average total compensation of $8,510 for the year.

The university was previously lauded by The Student Loan Report for its participation in the Federal Work-Study (FWS) program. Out of 200 private universities providing FWS opportunities, Tulane University ranked 19th in the publication’s report.
