Work Study and Student Employment

What is work study? 

When you apply for financial aid, work study is one type of aid for which you may qualify. Work study is not applied directly to your tuition account. Instead, you work at a job and receive a paycheck twice a month. Work study positions can be on or off campus. 

The name "work study" is confusing! You can't usually study while you are working at these jobs, but they are jobs designed for students with a flexible schedule that works around your classes. 

All work study openings are part-time positions. The maximum amount of hours and money a student can earn is determined by financial need and funds available. We work to match students with jobs that relate to their career pathway. 

Follow these steps to get started:

Step 1 - Are you eligible for work study funds?

  • To find out if you are eligible, email Career Services. In the subject line put  "Am I eligible for work study?" Include your full name and date of birth.  

Step 2 - View openings & apply

  • If you are eligible for funds the Career Center staff will reply to your email with the student employment application attached. Then you can apply for the job openings that are listed below.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          (In addition to being posted on this page, on and off campus job opportunities are sent to student email accounts in the Career Center News and are posted on the Career Center job board on the first floor in Wenatchi Hall. A background check is required. Speak to the Student Employment & Career Navigator if you have concerns.)

Step 3 - Interview & paperwork finalization

  • After applying for a position you may be called for an interview. Be prepared to be contacted! Have your voicemail set up to receive messages, check your email etc. If you are hired for a position, email Career Services to make an appointment to finalize the employment paperwork. You will need to present your ID/employment documents during this final step. Refer to page 3 of the I-9 form for a list of acceptable employment documents.
