What is Work Study?

The Work Study Office, in conjunction with the Financial Aid Office, administers the SFCC on-campus and off-campus work programs. Work Study employment is meant to be a productive experience for everyone involved: the student, the employer, and the institution as well as the community.

Goals of the Student Work Programs

  • To provide employment opportunities for eligible students to finance their college education. Students can also get experience related to their area of study and pursue career training.
  • To provide opportunities for student employees to gain on-the-job training and work experience while attending school.
  • To prepare students for future employment by providing experience with hiring, training, supervision, relations with public and other staff members. Work Study students can make career decisions and future job placement determinations while attending classes and performing their job duties.

How do I get Work Study?
