Federal Work-Study Program
The Federal Work-Study Program, a part of the Educational Opportunity Act of 1964, is available to students based on need as determined by federal guidelines. Students are employed on an hourly basis for a maximum of 19 hours per week in various departments of the college and in the community. Placements are on a first-come, first-served basis, based on job and funding availability. Students currently on Federal Work-Study Program must have a completed financial aid file by April 1 in order to be considered for the program for the next award year. All students must clear a criminal background check, complete the Board of Regents Ethics Training, actively enroll in six credit hours, make Satisfactory Academic Progress.
In addition to the Federal Work-Study Program, the college provides a limited number of other student assistantships involving part-time work on campus. Students are employed on an individual basis. Students should consult individual departments for employment opportunities.
