Prospective Student Information

Federal Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program gives you an opportunity to earn money to help pay for your educational expenses, interpersonal skills, time management, and workplace etiquette within the student’s job. This program provides opportunities to serve the community (including tutoring) and to work in areas related to your course of study. Your employer knows you are a college student first. Therefore, employers try to be as flexible as possible in scheduling your work hours around your class schedule. 

Your supervisor may become an excellent future reference. Your FWS job adds a new dimension to your career planning and distinguishes your background from other job seekers. Part-time employment through FWS enhances your education and adds a new perspective to your studies. You will see things from another point of view, which will help to develop your analytical and critical thinking skills.

  • Based on financial need, an allocation may be included in a student's financial aid award notification.
    • Please note, this is an average amount based on 10-12 hours per week. Students are not limited to this allocation, but they are not permitted to work more than 20 hours per week.
  • Federal College Work Study is not deducted from the bill. Students receive a bi-weekly pay check, if a position is secured.
  • Handshake Online Job Portal will be available to students in mid-August to complete a profile and upload a resume in preparation for future job opportunities.


Campus Employment

Campus Employment

Campus Employment also allows students, regardless of financial need, the opportunity to work on campus while boosting their resume, time management, problem-solving, and other life skills. Students who have special skills, or experience (ex. Computer skills, lifeguards) or work schedules that certain positions on campus require, may be hired at any time. After the 2 week period for only work-study hire, (beginning of Fall and Spring semesters), all students are eligible to apply for available jobs through the Handshake online job portal.

International students are eligible to work only through the Campus Employment Program. Available jobs will be listed on the Handshake online job portal. For further information, International Students can review the Employment Guide for International Students

Policies Regarding Student Employment

Marist College is legally obligated to pay every student employee minimum wage or higher. Undergraduate student employees are paid the minimum wage; graduate students are eligible to earn a slightly higher allocation, which is evaluated and determined every calendar year. Eligibility for the graduate rate is determined by each individual office. 
Federal law requires all employees to prove their eligibility to work in the United States PRIOR to working. This certification requires that the students fill out the New Hire Paperwork as described by the Student Employment Office via the myMarist portal.
During the academic year, along with our winter break, the college can only hire Marist students for on-campus positions through our student employment program. During winter and summer breaks, departments should make every effort to fill positions with Marist students. If you are unable to do so, contact
