However, a completed application is not a guarantee of employment with the work-study program due to the number of applications received and the number of positions available. You must complete your FAFSA prior to applying for a work-study position.
  2. Supervisors will review your application and will call or email you to schedule an interview if they decide you may be a candidate for hire in their departments.

After your interview, if the supervisor indicates that they would like to hire you, you will be contacted by the Career Development Office and asked to complete an online Work-Study Orientation in addition to new hire documents through the College Human Resources Office. These must be completed before you can begin working in your new position.
