Students are a valuable resource and a part-time work-study position is an excellent opportunity to gain experience and to help out with the costs college. Supervisors on campus realize students must be students first and that academic achievement is the first priority. They are very flexible in scheduling working hours and making accommodations for exams etc. Positions include jobs in the bookstore, dining services, the library and many other locations on campus. Students may also serve as reading and math tutors in local elementary/middle schools through the America Reads Program.
Federal Work Study is a federally-funded program which provides on-campus or community service employment to students with financial need as demonstrated by the FAFSA. Students with need, as determined by the FAFSA, will be awarded Federal Work Study Eligibility. Students will be responsible to search for jobs, set up interviews, complete job applications, and secure a position. The award does not guarantee a position and funds are not automatically posted to a student's account.
Students that secure positions may work up to 20 hours a week to earn their Federal Work Study award, but usually will work an average of 8-10 hours a week. The Federal Work Study award amount will be reflected on a student's award letter. The amount awarded to the student is the maximum that may be earned under the FWS program by the student during the academic year.Students will be paid directly and will need to complete the Direct Deposit form to have earning deposited directly into a checking or savings account. Students are paid minimum wage, but may be eligible for a pay increase in future years. Paychecks are issued every two weeks.

Again, students will be responsible to search for jobs, set up interviews, complete job applications, and secure a position. Students must complete the following forms before they will be permitted to work:
