Student Employment

Beacon College Student Employment Service assists students seeking on-campus employment.

Types of employment

Beacon College offers two types of on-campus employment opportunities for students: Federal Work Study positions and part-time positions.

The main differences between the two types of student employment on campus relate to the source of funding to pay the student and student eligibility criteria.

The eligibility criteria for each position differ according to department needs and the student’s course of study.

Federal Work Study Positions:

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is federally funded financial aid awarded to students based on their eligibility determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) along with other financial aid criteria. Upon their hiring, eligible students are awarded a specific amount, and the federal government subsidizes the wages to the employer.

Part-Time Positions:

Students without federal funding can find jobs across campus. All Beacon students are eligible to apply for these positions, regardless of financial need.

To apply for a position, please complete the Beacon Student Worker Application Form and attach your resume and cover letter to your digital application.
