Work Study Opportunities
Employment in the work study program can provide students with valuable experiences and training for future employment.
Work study is earn-as-you-go aid. Students earn work study money as they work the hours, rather than the funds being directly credited toward tuition like grants, scholarships, and loans. RMC students participating in the work study program are paid on the 12th of each month for the actual hours worked during the preceding month.
Work study is awarded by the Financial Aid Office to students enrolled full time. Most work study is awarded on the basis of financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), although students may be employed under either the Federal College Work Study program or the RMC Campus Employment program. Your work study eligibility will be listed on your award letter. If you are not awarded work study as part of your financial aid package and you would like to participate in this program, please contact the Financial Aid Office. Every effort will be made to accommodate your request, but funding is limited and is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. If we cannot add work study to your award, you may be placed on a waiting list. If work study funds become available, students on the waiting list will be considered for an award based on their eligibility.
Work study jobs may be on campus or in an off-campus community service organization. Students must qualify for federal work study to qualify for off-campus jobs. On average, students work ten hours per week. Employers often allow flexibility to accommodate class schedules, and students are encouraged to be involved in extracurricular activities at Rocky Mountain College. They must, however, be responsible employees. Sports, clubs, trips, meetings, functions, etc. may interfere with work schedules, and students should communicate any conflicted scheduled events to their supervisors. Students must also maintain satisfactory academic progress while in a work study program.
Many students qualify for the work study program, which makes the work study program competitive. RMC cannot guarantee a student will obtain a work study job and/or earn the amount they are awarded. It is up to each student to seek, apply for, and secure a work study position.
For instructions on obtaining a work study position please access the work study process student guide.
