Work Programs - We have two sources of funding for student employment: Federal College Work Study, which is a need based program; and Auxiliary, which is a non-need based program.
Federal College Work Study
A limited number of part-time jobs (up to 20 hours per week) are available on-campus or near campus through the Federal Work Study program. Federal College Work Study (FCWS) is a program in which funds are awarded to students based on their eligibility derived from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).This aid in not applied toward Pierpont charges, rather participating students receive regular paychecks for hours worked.
If offered, employment should be accepted only if you feel comfortable with an additional responsibility beyond your class schedule. Students must also meet basic eligibility requirements and have financial need. Priority is given to students who complete the FAFSA by March 1st. Job locations are varied and include almost every segment of the institution: administrative and academic departmental offices, laboratories, athletics, library, residence halls, recreation center and safety and security.
