What is the student work study program?
The Sattler College Work Study Program provides jobs for undergraduate students with or without financial need. The program encourages community service work and work related to your course of study. To be eligible a student must apply for work study eligibility through the Sattler Finance Office. The eligibility guidelines include a complete application, updated resume and maintained 3.0 grade point average.
What will I be paid and how many hours will I work?
The current wage rate is $15.00/hour.
Your award amount will be made to allow you to work 12 to 15 hours per week. This is an average workweek and may vary depending on other obligations a student may have related to academic requirements. The maximum a student can work on-campus is 20 hours per week.
What type of jobs are available?
On-Campus Jobs - Jobs are available for most departments around campus. Students who are awarded Work Study and are interested in on-campus jobs will be provided with a listing of openings. Positions are available in a variety of settings.
Off-Campus Jobs - Two main categories of jobs exist in this category:
- Community Service - Employment opportunities are available in non-profit organizations that are aimed at improving the quality of life for community residents, particularly low-income individuals, or to solve particular problems related to their needs. Students are paid to work for these agencies.
- The America Reads/America Counts Programs - These programs are designed to provide tutoring to area children in need of additional help in the areas of reading or mathematical competency. This is an excellent way for students to serve the needs of the community and obtain a rewarding and enriching experience through the Federal Work Study program only.
