Student employment & work-study
Advantages of working on campus:
- Opportunity to earn money to help pay for educational expenses
- Helps ease the transition to college
- Develops professional contacts such as references for future applications
- Builds a solid employment history
- Develops time management skills
- Flexible schedule
- Federal Work-Study (FWS) provides part-time jobs for undergraduate, graduate and professional students with financial need, allowing them to earn money.
- The program encourages community service work and work related to your course of study.
- We determine award amounts on the basis of financial need from the FAFSA.
- The maximum FWS award varies each academic year.
- Limited funding, so not all students qualify; file the FAFSA as soon as possible beginning October 1 for the following academic year.
Community service work-study
- Provides the opportunity for you to take an active role in the greater community while earning money.
- Positions range from reading and tutoring in local elementary schools to working with the developmentally disabled in a sheltered workshop.
- Federal Work-Study jobs represent a small minority of all the student jobs on campus. If you don't receive a work-study award, there are many employment opportunities on campus and in the city of Stillwater.
