FEDERAL WORK-STUDY PROGRAM & WORK OPPORTUNITIES:
There are two types of student employment opportunities available to New England College students - Federal Work Study and Institutional Work. Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally subsidized employment program awarded to students with federal eligibility and demonstrated financial need. FWS provides students with on and off-campus community service job opportunities to help meet college expenses. The maximum eligible earning level is the amount listed on the award statement. Actual earnings are not guaranteed and depend on the hours worked in the academic year along with the rate of pay. Awards usually range from $1,500 and $2,000 for the full academic year and are based on students working approximately 8-10 hours per week. Please note that Student Employment earnings are paid directly to the student and not deducted from the bill, so do not factor student employment funds when calculating your financial aid budget.
You must complete the I9 form and show certain documents to verify your eligibility to work. Please bring either one document from Column A (on the I9 form) OR one document from column B and one from column C to ensure you can complete the I9 form promptly and participate in the Federal Work-Study and New England College Student Employment Programs.
Students who do not qualify for Federal Work-Study or who do not apply for financial aid can work under the campus Institutional Work program, but please note that these positions are very limited. Students in either program may work no more than 20 hours per week while school is in session. During the semester break, spring break, and the summer, students may work up to 40 hours per week if the job and funding permit. Federal Work Study recipients receive first consideration for available campus positions. A Federal Work Study award does not guarantee students an on-campus position.
