Federal Work-Study

Need a job? The SCC Financial Aid Office may be able to help with that.

The Federal College Work-Study Program at SCC provides qualified students the opportunity to obtain part-time employment during the academic year. A student can identify their work study eligibility by examining their financial aid Award Letter sent to them by SCC. Eligibility will be indicated by the inclusion of a "Work Study" award and amount located on the Award Letter. However, the inclusion of a work-study award does not guarantee employment through the program. Due to the limited amount of federal funds and the limited availability of work-study positions, not every qualified student will obtain employment through the program. Students must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours) in order to participate in the federal work-study program.

Jobs are located on-campus or off-campus (off-campus positions are limited to not-for-profit community service based positions). The wage rate for 2016-2017 is $8.50 per hour ($9.50 per hour for off campus community service positions). Award amounts are based on calculated need as determined by information provided on the FAFSA.
