STUDENT WORK OPPORTUNITIES AT CROWN COLLEGE

FEDERAL WORK STUDY PROGRAM

The Federal Work-Study program provides many on-campus jobs and some off-campus jobs for undergraduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay for educational expenses.

ELIGIBILITY FOR WORK-STUDY

Students who qualify for Federal Work-Study have the opportunity to work and earn money through the Work-Study program. Job opportunities are awarded on the basis of need determined by the FAFSA. A student must complete the FAFSA to determine eligibility. Students who qualify for work-study will receive a work-study application with their initial financial aid award letter.

Work-Study is not treated the same as other forms of financial aid which are available for disbursement near the beginning of a semester. Work-Study awards are considered earning potential. Students must work their hours before receiving work-study wages. Students are paid monthly by check, and may use their earnings for personal expenses or to make payments on their school bill.

JOBS

There are many jobs available to students each year. The major areas of employment are: library, maintenance, athletics, food service, faculty assistants, clerical, housekeeping, admissions counselor, and receptionist.

Applying for a job? View job listings below. And then complete the application in the student section of our.crown.edu. When a student applies for a job they will receive a confirmation email stating the application was received. The application will be directed to the department that is indicated on the application.

Please note that most positions are filled during new student week in August, or the weeks following the start of the new school year. But there are jobs available later in the year as well, just not as many.

How many hours do I work and when do I get paid? Most students work 10 hours per week and are paid on a monthly basis.

How do I know what my work schedule is? Student workers will work with their job supervisor to create a work schedule that is designed to fit with their class schedule.

How much do I get paid? The starting wage varies and is dependent on skills, performance and longevity. Minimum wage is $8.00 per hour. Beginning August 1st, 2015 minimum wage will be $9.00 per hour. Contact the payroll office for more details on pay rates.

NOT WORK-STUDY ELIGIBLE? If a student did not file a FAFSA or are not eligible for Work-Study funds, they may still be hired for some of the advertised jobs. All students can complete the application for any or all of the jobs they are interested in.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT? If an International Student is seeking to work while attending Crown, they should also apply for the advertised jobs. All students can complete the application for any or all of the jobs they are interested in.

ALL STUDENT WORKERS Please note; that when a student is hired, they must provide employment documentation before they can start their job. This includes a completed W-2 tax form and the I-9 form. To complete the I-9 form you will also need to show identification; such as a Passport, Social Security Card, and/or Birth Certificate, etc. Please bring the originals, because copies of these documents are not accepted, according to U.S. Department of Homeland Security. If you have questions about this please contact our Human Resources department.
