There are two types of on-campus student employment:
Several on-campus offices and departments (as well as some off-campus community-based organizations) have the need for student workers, and can employ those who qualify under the category of Work-Study. The work for these positions may be performed at a maximum of 15 hours per week when school is in session or a 35 hours per week basis during periods of non-enrollment.
For students to be eligible for Work-Study positions on or off-campus, they must meet the following required and specific criteria, as mandated by both the state and federal government:
- Be eligible to receive financial aid and qualify for work-study funds, granted by both state and federal work-study programs.
- Be enrolled as a MCC student, taking a minimum of 6 six credits, and making satisfactory progress.
There are also positions available on-campus for students who do not qualify under Work-Study. These positions are funded through various individual departments’ Discretionary Budgets. There are fewer of these positions and they are not as heavily advertised as Work-Study positions. To find out if an individual department or office has a discretionary position available, a student typically needs to stop in and inquire. MCC areas that commonly have open discretionary positions are the Library, Fitness & Athletics, Admissions, Registrar, Continuing Education and ETDL. We encourage students to always come prepared with a current résumé when making an inquiry.
