Campus Employment

Oglethorpe offers the option of on-campus employment to help students earn money for college expenses. Some positions are part of a student's need-based financial aid package, while others may be available to qualified students regardless of financial need.

Federal Work-Study
Other On-Campus Jobs

Federal Work-Study (FWS)
This program is designed to provide qualified students with the chance to earn part of their educational expenses by working a part-time job on campus. To be employed by this program, students must show evidence of financial need through a completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Your financial award packet will indicate if you are eligible for Federal Work-Study. Undergraduates are paid by the hour, and wages must equal at least the federal minimum wage. The amount earned through Federal Work-Study cannot exceed a student’s total FWS award. The Office of Financial Aid coordinates all work-study assignments. When assigning work hours, Oglethorpe will consider a student’s award amount, class schedule and academic progress.

First-time work-study recipients will be contacted with more details on their employment opportunities. Typically, the work-study placement process does not begin until the late summer or the beginning of each fall semester, as the number, type and availability of positions must be determined before the Office of Financial Aid can proceed in placing incoming students.

Other On-Campus Jobs
In addition to Federal Work-Study positions, some departments at Oglethorpe offer opportunities for student employment that is not based on financial need. Type and availability of non-work-study employment varies by semester. Enrolled students will receive notice if application opportunities arise for part-time on-campus employment.
