Work-Study Program

The Work-Study Program is a federally funded grant program that provides employment for students to help with the cost of education. If you have additional questions, see FAQs or a Financial Aid Advisor during walk-in hours. Please call (209) 667-3336.

If I am awarded Work-Study, what is my next step?

  • Accept your award
  • Apply for a job (You may begin seeking job placements as early as August)

Current Openings

Funding is limited! Students may begin working the first day of each semester; or the date the hiring process is completed, whichever date is later.

Before you can begin work:

First-Time Work-Study Employee

If you are a first-time work-study employee that has been hired (not previously employed), a sign-in session with Human Resources is required prior to beginning work. Students will need to bring acceptable identification to one of the scheduled Sign-Ins. For more information please visit the Human Resources website.

* If one of the sign-in sessions conflicts with a student's classes, an appointment may be scheduled by contacting Human Resources Department (MSR 320 Building #27 see map) at (209) 667-3351.

NOTE: If your Federal Work-Study award is not accepted or if you have not found employment it may be canceled. Cancellation is for the entire academic year.
