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 17 hours per week when school is in session or a 35 hours per week basis during periods of non-enrollment.
To be eligible to participate in the work-study program, a student must:
- Apply for financial aid and demonstrate financial need for such employment, based on federal and institutional standards.
- Apply and be admitted at Manchester Community College.
- Complete and submit all required documentation to the Financial Aid office.
- Be making satisfactory academic progress.
- Be matriculated in a financial-aid-eligible associate degree or certificate program.
- Be enrolled at least half-time (six credits or more).
- Be a citizen or eligible non-citizen of the United States.
- Submit a Work-Study Application with an attached resume to the Financial Aid office.
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, Admissions, Registrar, Continuing Education and Educational Technology/Distance Learning. We encourage students to always come prepared with a current résumé when making an inquiry.
