Work-Study and Student Workers

Student employment provides Saint Paul College students the opportunity to work in paying on campus positions to help fund their education. These jobs provide students the chance to enhance work-related skills in a professional environment. Student employment is not meant to be the sole source of financial support for a student, nor is it considered part-time employment. It is a form of financial assistance.

Types of Student Employment

Work-Study

Students with need based eligibility may apply for a Work-Study position. The Financial Aid Office determines if a student is eligible based on information from the SAR (Student Aid Report). The SAR is generated once the student has completed and submitted the FAFSA. Students must meet Satisfactory Academic Progress standards to qualify. The funds for this program are paid by the federal government, state government, and Saint Paul College.

Student Worker

Student Workers do not have to meet the Work-Study need-based eligibility standards. However, all student employees must meet Saint Paul College Satisfactory Academic Progress standards. The funds for this program come from Saint Paul College and, therefore, only students with very specialized skills are hired as Student Workers. Offices or departments may hire students, as their needs require and funds allow, with the approval of their respective Dean or Manager.

Steps to Apply for Student Employment

  1. Students interested in a Work-Study position must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and receive an award letter before applying for work study positions. (Not necessary for Student Worker positions.)
  2. Students must activate an account on the Career and Placement System (CAPS).
  3. Students can view and apply for open student employment positions using the log-in and password for CAPS.
  4. The supervisor of the position will contact applicants to set up interviews.
  5. The supervisor will contact the student they want to hire and will also notify candidates that the position has been filled.
