On-Campus Opportunities


Work/Study Programs (General Work/Study, LEAP and RAY)

The Work/Study Program at York University provides eligible undergraduate students (domestic and international) with the opportunity to develop professional skills and contribute to the University through paid, on-campus employment opportunities.

Eligibility criteria for General Work/Study, LEAP and RAY

Undergraduate students must complete the Student Financial Profile (SFP) at the start of each academic session (once for fall/winter and once for summer) to be considered for on-campus employment. Eligibility for the program does not guarantee employment.
