PWSCC has various employment opportunities available to full-time students. Working for the college is convenient, flexible to your class schedule, and gets you better connected on campus. Students are currently on payroll as Office Assistants, evening Custodial Assistants, Community Advisors in student housing, and as Attendants in the Wellness Center. Seasonal employment in the summer is also available. To support the prioritization of full-time academic endeavors, student employees may work no more than 20 hours per week on campus. Students eligible for federal work study are encouraged to apply, though work study applicants will not be given preference in the selection process. International students may work on campus without a work visa.
To be eligible for on-campus employment, students must:
- Be enrolled in at least 12 credits
- Maintain a semester GPA of at least 2.0 (some positions require higher GPAs)
