Work Opportunities

Review the Student Work Opportunities List Below

Once a position is selected, complete the job application online.

The application will be used to determine eligibility for work study. Employment applications for all eligible students will be forwarded to the department supervisor and it is up to the supervisor to contact the student regarding an interview. Once hired, the student will be emailed a new student hire packet, or will be asked to stop by the financial aid office to fill out the paperwork. Once the paperwork is complete and returned to Zee Sloan in the Financial Aid Office, the student will receive a work agreement. The work agreement must be signed by the student and the supervisor. Pay close attention to the dollar amounts and number of work hours allowed to work on the work agreement. If the student exceeds the work study amount stated on the work agreement they will not be paid.

An online timecard will be issued to students for clocking work hours. The student MUST clock in and clock out before and after each shift, and the supervisor MUST approve the time logged. The timecard will be approved at the end of each month. This will allow the timecard to be processed so the student can receive payment. If the timecard is not approved by supervisor and the student, the student will not get paid.

As a part of student work, students will earn money while gaining valuable work experience during their college education. Student Workers help the college in many departments with various needs. Earnings are not applied directly to a student’s account. Students are able to make payments on their account from their earnings by visiting the business office.
