Work Study Employment
Work Study programs provide jobs for students to assist them in meeting their educational expenses. Efforts are made to provide employment related to career interests. Placement can be made in either an on-campus position or an off campus position (with non-profit or for-profit employers). Early applicants who indicate an interest in work study will receive a work-study award. Students who decide after the school year has started that they would like to participate in the work-study program should stop by the financial aid office to see if there is still work study funding available. A work study award is only an estimate of what you might earn if you are hired, work, and submit monthly time sheets. A work-study award cannot pay tuition and fees. To qualify, you must be enrolled for at least half-time (6 credits).

On-Campus Work Study Procedures: On-campus work study position openings are posted on the display located in the Financial Aid Office. The majority of on-campus positions are clerical, often requiring computer and interpersonal skills. In addition, there are some library, custodial, maintenance, and other positions available. Most positions range from 6-12 hours per week.

  1. Determine if you meet the qualifications as listed on the job opening position announcement.
  2. Request a “On-campus Work Study Application” form from the Financial Aid Office.
  3. Schedule an interview with the supervisor as listed on the job opening position announcement. Phone number and supervisor’s location is listed on the announcement.
  4. Supervisors will notify you if you are selected for the position.
  5. If hired, complete required payroll forms at the Human Relations office.
  6. Students are paid monthly at the current hourly pay rate of $10.83. Paychecks are mailed directly to students.
