Campus Student Employment

 

Student Employment Programs

What is work-study?

Florida Southern College offers a student employment program which provides part-time employment to undergraduate students. The program introduces students to real life work experience. Students can use the work experience to begin building their professional resume or simply to assist with life expenses. Working on campus often gives students more job flexibility than working at an off-campus job because on-campus employers are usually more understanding of student class schedules and school work.

The College has two types of student employment programs: Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Florida Southern College Work-Study (FSC WS).

Federal Work-Study (FWS)

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a form of financial aid awarded to students who demonstrate financial need and meet certain eligibility requirements. Each student must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for FWS. Students should be sure to mark "yes" to the question on the FAFSA that asks if the student is interested in student employment. If the student has already filed the FAFSA for this year and did not demonstrate interest in FWS but is interested now, he/she should visit the Financial Aid Office (FAO) to determine eligibility. A new FAFSA must be completed each year for continued consideration in the Federal Work Study Program. The total FWS award depends on the application date, the student’s level of need, and the funding level of the school. If funds are not available, the student may be put on a waiting list as long as he/she maintains eligibility. Eligibility does not guarantee a student will secure a position.

Florida Southern College Work-Study (FSC WS)

Florida Southern College Work-Study (FSC WS) is a financial aid program funded by institutional funds. If a student does not qualify for Federal Work-Study, he/she should inquire about other student employment opportunities on campus for which the Federal Work-Study program does not apply.

FWS and FSC student employees must continue to meet all eligibility requirements throughout both fall and spring semesters. This includes maintaining full time active enrollment in FSC classes and maintaining a 2.0 GPA.

Role of Financial Aid Office

The Financial Aid Office awards student employment funds to students and monitors them for continued eligibility throughout the academic year. Student eligibility can change during the year, which may require that a student’s award be reduced or cancelled.

Students seeking student employment positions apply by contacting the designated hiring supervisor for availability. When the hiring supervisor has an opening and makes an offer of employment to the student the supervisor will notify the office of Financial Aid of the hire. The student then visits the office of Financial Aid to complete employment paperwork. Work may not begin until the student has completed all forms requirements through the office of Financial Aid.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of the types of job opportunities on campus for students when available. The positions include a brief description and qualifications as well as contact information for the hiring supervisor. A full description of the position is available in Financial Aid. If you are interested in working for a department that is not listed here, contact the department’s Administrative Assistant for availabilities.
