Welcome to the 2011 Fall Semester!
Each new school year brings new students seeking employment opportunities through the work-study program. It also brings a lot of questions about the program. Here are answers to some of the most common questions.
What is work-study?
- The program is designed to allow students an opportunity to earn an hourly wage working part-time in either an on-campus or select off-campus position. These opportunities do not interfere with your class schedule.
What are the qualifications?
- There are two types of work-study, Institutional and Federal. Institutional positions are funded by the college and require enrollment in 6 hours or more and an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher. Federal positions are based on financial aid eligibility and require enrollment in 6 hours or more, GPA of 2.0 or higher, and the student cannot be on Financial Aid Probation.
How do I apply?
- You must complete an application with the Student Employment office so that your eligibility may be screened. You also must register on Career Connection, upload a resume, and then apply for work-study positions that are advertised. You will be contacted for an interview just as you would for any job you apply to. For more information, visit our work-study web page.
