Student Employee Definition
A student employee is a part-time employee who is enrolled and attending classes at Muskegon Community College and whose primary purpose for being at Muskegon Community College is to further his/her education. Such employment, therefore, is interim or temporary and incidental to the pursuit of an education. Student employees shall not work more than twenty (20) hours per week except with prior approval from the Student Employment Office. A student must be enrolled for a minimum of six credits.
What does Work-Study mean?
Federal Work Study (FWS) is an employment program which helps eligible students earn part or all of the funds needed to meet their education expenses. In addition to providing financial assistance, Federal Work Study also helps students gain valuable experience while pursuing a college education. This program does not guarantee that you will have a job on campus. It is a first come first serve program for students who are eligible.
The title of this program, Work Study, does not mean you get full reign on doing ONLY your homework. It means you are being PAID to perform a service and gain valuable work experience. If you find that you are getting behind on your studies, you may want to look for position(s) off campus that will work around your class schedule and give you the needed study time.
2012-13 Work-study awards will be cancelled by October 1, 2012 IF not accepted by this date. Re-instatement of awards are subject to availability and timing - please see the work-study coordinator in Financial Aid for more information, if applicable.
