Breanne Leblanc

Radiologic Technology, 2022

Breanne Leblanc ’22 graduated from the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) with a BS in Radiologic Technology, and was hired before graduation from her program. She has started a full-time third-shift position at ECHN Rockville General Hospital as a CT Technologist.

I learned a lot from all of my professors in ENHP and most of all they welcomed me with a kind and open heart that I will continue to pass on to my future patients.

Current Student Resources


Students interested in working during the academic year have three options:

Federal Work-Study:
Jobs are available to students who are qualified based on the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The program is financed with federal money and is administered by the University's Office of Student Financial Assistance.

Eligibility for financial aid is determined by the University of Hartford's Office of Student Financial Assistance. If you qualify for Federal Work-Study, it will be listed in your financial aid award, which can be viewed in your self-service account. Your total FWS amount is specified here as well. You may not earn more through this program than your award specifies. You are paid an hourly rate and receive a paycheck every two weeks. Schedules and work responsibilities are discussed with the immediate supervisor. All FSW students may work a maximum of 20 hours per week during the academic year.

All work-study jobs will be posted on Handshake, our career portal, by the end of August. Check your financial aid packet to see if you qualify for Federal Work Study.  If you have an amount listed for Federal Work Study, search for "Federal Work Study" job postings on Handshake.

Non-work study employment:
There are many on-campus positions that do not require work study funding, but still allow students to earn money for work performed on campus. The following departments often employ students on a part-time basis, but there are many others:

    1. Dean's Offices

    2. Sports Center

    3. Lincoln Theater

    4. University Libraries

    5. Campus Store

    6. ARAMARK Food Services
