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 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. 

The maximum amount a student can earn is determined by financial need and funds available. Students can work up to 19 hours per week while school is in session. We work to match students with jobs that relate to their field of study. 

Follow these steps.

Step 1
To find out if you are eligible, email Amy Olson.  
In the subject line put  Am I eligible for work study? Include your full name. 

Step 2
Open positions (see below) and off campus opportunities are sent to student email accounts in the Career Center News on Fridays and are posted on the Career Center job board on the first floor in Wenatchi Hall. Fill out an application and bring it to the Educational Planning and Testing Center, first floor in Wenatchi Hall. Some positions may require a background check. Speak to the career services coordinator if you have concerns. 

        Walk-in hours

Step 3
When you are hired for a position, make an appointment at the testing center for an onboarding session (complete employment paperwork). Bring ID/employment documents to the session. Refer to page 3 of the I-9 form for a list of acceptable employment documents.
