Work Programs

We have two sources of funding for student employment: Federal College Work Study, which is a need based program; and Auxiliary, which is a non-need based program.

Federal College Work Study

A limited number of part-time jobs (up to 20 hours per week) are available on-campus or near campus through the Federal Work Study program. Federal College Work Study (FCWS) is a program in which funds are awarded to students based on their eligibility derived from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This aid is not applied toward Pierpont charges, but participating students receive regular paychecks for hours worked.

If offered, employment should be accepted only if you feel comfortable with an additional responsibility beyond your class schedule. Students must also meet basic eligibility requirements and have financial need. Priority is given to students who complete the FAFSA by March 1. Job locations are varied and include almost every segment of the institution, including administrative and academic departmental offices.

Information about Federal Work-Study from the U.S. Department of Education.

Auxiliary Work Study

The Auxiliary program is funded directly by the institution. The earnings you receive are not applied to tuition or other institutional charges. Students are limited to 20 hours of work per week and the wage rate vary.

Job locations are varied and include almost every segment of the institution.
