Federal Work Study is federally funded and is awarded to students demonstrating financial need. Students having no financial need may participate in the College Funded Work Study Program. These student wages are paid from R-MC department budget allocations.
Students may work up to 20 hours per week during the school year. Hours are flexible based on the student's schedule. The average student works 10 hours per week. Students are paid monthly and checks are written to the students - the money earned is not automatically applied toward tuition. All jobs are classified into four categories: unskilled, skilled, highly skilled and paraprofessional.
Students who have never worked on campus must have two forms of ID: a driver's license and Social Security card or birth certificate are necessary for employment as required by the Internal Revenue Service. All students who work for R-MC are required to have a Social Security number for payroll purposes.
Student Employee grievances should adhere to the policy on Student Complaints in the Academic Catalog (p.174) and The Student Handbook (pg. 13).
Students who qualify for Federal Work Study may take advantage of paid off-campus employment opportunities with the following community service agencies: The Valentine Museum, Hanover Community Services or tutoring at area elementary schools.
Please be advised that the employment process is very competitive. We encourage students to be patient, flexible and persistent. The Supervisor may not give you an immediate job confirmation. You may be placed on a list to be interviewed after you arrive on campus. There will be a JOB FAIR 12:30 - 1:30 p.m. August 29, 2014 in Andrews Hall Commons Room. If you have questions or concerns please contact the financial aid office at 804-752-7259.
