Work Study Programs


 

The Student Employment Program requires students be enrolled in and complete a minimum of six (6) credits per quarter. The six (6) credit enrollment requirement is waived over summer quarter but you must be pre-enrolled for fall quarter or sign an Intent to Enroll form. Contact the Employment Services if you are interested in community service positions.

Federal Work Study—On-Campus

Federal Work Study positions are generally located on the Clark College campus. These positions are not required to be related to a student's major and pay the current minimum wage. Community service jobs are available on campus. Contact the Financial Aid Office if you are interested in community service positions.

State Work Study—On and off-Campus

The State Work Study Program is funded by the Washington State Legislature and administered by the Washington Student Achievement Council (WASC) through the college Work Study Office. These funds are generally used for on and off-campus jobs, which are relevant to your major or hold career interest. There may be a select number of State Work Study positions on campus each year.

Employers are reimbursed a percentage of the student's salary. The rate of pay is comparable to that of other employees in that organization engaged in similar work. Contact the Financial Aid Office if you are interested in State Work Study positions.

The Institutional Hire Program offers on-campus jobs to students who do not qualify for Work Study. Individual Clark College departments fund these positions.
