05:07:05   Student Employment

There are several opportunities for students to work for the College in order to earn income to offset their educational expenses. Following is a brief description of two of these programs:

  1. Federal Work Study Program (FWSP):According to federal regulations, students who may be eligible for financial aid can be employed under the Federal Work Study Program.  To determine eligibility, a student must apply for financial aid by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) generated from the FAFSA determines the student’s eligibility. 

    Eligible students must submit a Federal Work Study Application, demonstrate unmet financial need, meet Satisfactory Academic Progress to be considered for the program, and be registered in classes. The Federal Funds Associate will contact students to set up an interview upon the availability of positions.

    Once the supervisor interviews the student and confirms that would like to hire the student, the Federal Funds Associate will set up an appointment with the student to complete the new hire process. Both the supervisor and the student must sign the contract, confidentiality agreement, and FWS Student guidelines and return to the Federal Funds Associate before the student can begin working.

    Students are typically approved to work 10-15 hours per week, based on their individual unmet need. Timesheets are due at the end of each month. Student workers are paid on the 15th of each month.
  2. Northeast State Part-time Employees:Students may be hired on a part-time basis through the regular employment channels. Students cannot hold a Federal Work Study position and a part-time position at the college at the same time. Organizational units desiring to employ students in part-time positions must have funds allocated in the departmental budget.
