Student Employment Network
Career Services offers a Student Employment Network to assist students seeking employment opportunities
both on-campus and off-campus. The number of on-campus jobs available at a time will vary, but the potential
for students to find campus employment is good. We also maintain a list of off-campus positions with
local area employers for a variety of positions and skill levels.
- To be eligible for any on-campus employment (regular or work-study), the person must be an enrolled
student of Wor-Wic Community College and must register with the office of Career Services in Student
Services at AAB-111. Minimum enrollment for non-work-study student workers is 6 credits per semester
(fall, spring and summer). This makes you eligible for FICA exemption, which means that students attending
institutions of higher education (two or four-year schools) are exempt from paying social security taxes
while working on campus. This does not impact the withholding of state and federal income. Student workers
may not exceed 15 hours per week per semester.
- Work-study is a federal or state financial aid program to support student work on campus and is rewarded
based on need. Only students who have received an award letter from the Financial Aid office may use
the study award in any employment role on campus. Most student employees on campus are paid directly
out of department budget. Work-study is exempt from FICA.
- Wages are paid directly to the student employee twice a month by check for hours worked. The college
takes out no deductions for student bills or loan repayment. These obligations are the student’s own
- The on-campus student employment pay rate is currently $7.26 per hour. The rate will increase to $7.41 per hour effective July 1, 2012.
Applications for student employment on-campus can be obtained in the Career Services office or
- The Career Services office will screen student applicants prior to forwarding the information on to
the requesting office or department supervisor. It is the responsibility of the employing department
to monitor the enrollment status and work performance of the student employee.
- Job notices for off campus employment are posted on our Career Services “job openings” bulletin board
at the college campus in AAB 111 and on the Career Services section of the college's website
(see CollegeCentral.com icon above).
All questions about work-study, as part of the financial aid package, can be addressed to the Financial
Aid office at 410-334-2906 or by email
