Student Employment

Undergraduate students are eligible to apply for Student Employment as a part of their federal aid package. Federal Work-Study is a federally subsidized program through the Department of Education and can include on-campus or off-campus work opportunities. A student’s financial aid award package will include a Federal Work-Study award when the student answers ‘Yes’ to the FAFSA question ‘Are you interested in being considered for work-study?’. If a student does not answer ‘Yes’ to this question, they are still eligible to apply and work in a Student Employment position. If a student does not meet the eligibility requirements of Federal Work-Study, the student is eligible to work in a Student Employment position and be paid through NWCCD.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Complete the FAFSA application
  • Meet Satisfactory Academic Progress per federal regulations
  • Must have unmet financial aid need

Sheridan College and Gillette College both have on-campus and off-campus employment opportunities. Student can access NWCCD’s student employment information site located within our intranet, NWCCD Hub>Financial Life>Student Employment, to find specific job descriptions and application instructions.
