“Commitment to Excellence in Nurturing Student Success”
Listed below are some guidelines to ensure your success in the On-Campus Student Worker program.
Assists with School Expenses: The Federal Work Study Program (FWSP) is an earn as you go program that allows need based students to receive money for college expenses.
Prevents Debt: By earning funds for school expenses, students can reduce their out of pocket expenses, thus borrowing less in student loans.
Positively Affects Student Development: Students that work part-time, on-campus achieve higher grade point averages and faster degree completion in general, than their non–working peers. Studies show that these students also have more frequent intellectual growth.
The Federal Work-Study Program is a federally-funded program for students who need financial assistance with educational expenses. The program offers meaningful part-time employment on campus or with an off- campus community service organization to eligible students while enrolled at Bergen Community College.
Due to funding limitations, Financial Aid Office cannot guarantee a job for everyone. Students are encouraged to begin their job search as early as possible after they receive their federal work-study award. Students will be interviewed and placed for jobs on a first come, first served basis. Please contact the CAREER AND TRANSFER SERVICES office for placement, Room A-123.
Orientation will be mandatory for FWS students. The orientation will be administered by the Career and Transfer Services Office and will be one hour in duration. (Students will be paid for their attendance at their hourly rate).
The Maximum award FOR FWS STUDENTS will be $1500.00 for the academic year, if eligible.
A listing of all available positions will continue to be maintained in the Career Center, to further improve this process, we keep all job leads for student employment on our on-line job search system College Central. (www.collegecentral.com/bergencc)
General Student Aide Positions will be classified into a Tier system. Effective Spring 2011.
