Student Employment

Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study offers students part-time employment right here at Mohawk Valley Community College. Students may be enrolled Part-Time or Full-Time to earn Work Study as part of their Financial Aid Award. Students can earn a wage while they attend classes without the additional challenges of transportation and lack of regard for the academic calendar. Students also gain employment experience, often related to their academic disciplines. Most importantly, staff offers the opportunity for students to learn, experience employment and professional conduct that will serve them long after they leave MVCC.

How To Participate?

The MVCC Financial Aid Office administers the Work Study funds. When you complete the FAFSA, you can indicate that you are interested in a Work Study job. If you are eligible and there are funds available, you are granted Work Study funds. Maimun Khan, Career & Student Employment Specialist, (PH104B,, is notified and she enrolls you into the Work Study Orientation in the Blackboard website. Once you complete the Orientation, you are then directed to College Central Network with instructions on how to search for the Work Study positions. Follow instructions to apply and accept the job offers you are interested in. A decision will then be made about your employment. Please note that being awarded Works Study does not guarantee you a position.
