Work Study

Each year, the federal government helps fund work-study jobs on campus and through service projects off campus. If you’re looking for more ways to pay for college, work-study jobs can be a great way to help.

If I can’t find any job postings on Hire Evangel, who else can I contact for open positions?

Job Opportunities

Job opportunities include employment on campus as well as community service off campus. You must find and interview for the job of your choice by contacting the employers with current openings (Hire Evangel). Students work an average of eight hours per week and are allowed only one work-study job at a time.

Before Starting

Prior to working, you must have your direct supervisor submit a work-study contract to the work-study coordinator. Students must also complete their employment paperwork in the HR office in Riggs Hall (309E). Failure to complete this step could delay payment (and nobody wants that).

Starting Your Job

Jobs begin the first day of classes each semester. Most departments will designate hours around class schedules. In the event that you need some free time (such as to study for a test), contact your supervisor so an arrangement can be made. See the First Job Guide for more information.

The Federal Work-Study program is a great opportunity to show your responsibility. It’s a truly profitable learning experience that prepares you for the future. Prove it, you say? Just ask the Financial Aid Office – it frequently receives calls from prospective employers concerning students’ job evaluations while they were employed in the work study program. Really.

Getting Paid

Pay starts at minimum wage, and you can choose to have your pay automatically deposited by completing a Direct Deposit Form or to your student account by completing the Voluntary Deduction Form (pdf). It’s literally money in the bank.
