Work Study Program

Work Study Program

The work study program provides students with a work opportunity that will enhance individual learning and provide valuable job experience. Erskine College students may qualify for Federal Work Study or an Erskine Work job opportunity. All positions allow student workers to earn money and provide the college with needed services. Work study earnings are not directly applied to the student’s account. Students are able to make payments to their account from work study earnings by visiting the Finance Division office. Students work an average of 5 to 10 hours per week and no more than 15 hours per week.

The Federal Work Study Program at Erskine College provides on-campus and off-campus work opportunities for qualified students.
