Student Jobs and Defraying Tuition Costs
Visit MyPlattsburgh for a current listing of employment opportunities
There are three types of part-time jobs for students to consider:
- Federal work-study
- On-campus temporary service
Each semester there is also a job-fair during the first week of classes in the Angel College Center. Both on-campus and off-campus employers attend the job fair in order to recruit part-time student workers.
With on-campus jobs, students submit a time sheet every two weeks and also receive a paycheck every two weeks. These wages can be used to help pay for the monthly educational and personal expenses, but not be deducted from the bill.
|Federal Work-Study On-campus||Normally $9.75 per hour effective 1/28/2016||Work-study is awarded to students enrolled with an EFC less than COA until our budget is exhausted, which normally occurs in mid-March. To apply, complete the FAFSA (Apply for Aid) and indicate that you are interested in work-study on it. If you receive work-study, it will be included in your financial aid award letter. In early August, we start to mail instructions on how to apply for a job. These instructions include the terms and conditions for employment..|
