Work Study Programs

Federal College Work Study

This is a federal work program for students with financial need. You may be employed on a Valencia campus or as a reading tutor in a local public school. As a work-study employee, you may work up to 20 hours per week and earn at least minimum wage – up to the amount of your financial need.

How will I receive a job assignment?

If you have been awarded and if you wish to be considered for an on-campus job, you must accept work study on your award letter in Atlas. Follow the steps outlined on the award letter. If selected, your supervisor will have you meet with a Financial Aid Specialist to complete the remaining assignment documents. You will need to bring your Social Security Card and proof of citizenship or eligibility to work in the U.S. with you to your meeting.

How will I receive payment for my Federal Work Study Award?

Federal Work Study is an opportunity to work and build work experience. You will receive a paycheck from Valencia’s Payroll Department every two weeks based on the time sheet you and your supervisor will keep. You will receive a packet of information about this process when your assignment documents are completed.

Institutional Work Study

Various campus departments and laboratories have funding to hire students as part-time employees. You should inquire in the departments about any available openings.
