Campus Employment

A student’s financial aid package contains various components, one of which may be work study. Work study is a great way to supplement a student’s expenses while attending the college. While work study is a component of a student’s financial aid award, the funding does not get disbursed towards the student’s bill. Instead the student will receive a bi-weekly payment. The employment opportunities on (and off campus at the Santa Fe location) campus are designed to prepare students for jobs upon graduation. The program helps to provide students with work experience that can be placed on their resumes.

Campus Employment is a campus-specific program: Annapolis and Santa Fe have distinct programs as outlined in the handbooks.

Annapolis Campus Employment

Campus employment at St. John’s College in Annapolis has a new Campus Employment Program. Current students will notice major changes to the way students qualify and apply for jobs. We wanted to give students a “real life” prospective when it came to applying and interviewing for jobs. Therefore, students will apply directly to the departments in which they would like the opportunity to work. There are around 180 jobs that are broken into three categories: Academic Assistants, Federal Work Study, and International Work Study. All positions that are not included under the Academic Assistants are only eligible for Federal Work Study or International Work Study recipients. Therefore, if a student’s award package does not state “FWS” of “International Work Study,” they are not eligible to apply for campus employment but can be considered for the waitlist.

*Please note that FWS or IWS funds are not applied to a student’s bill. Instead, students will receive a paycheck biweekly if he or she procures a job on campus.

Academic Assistants

These are positions that do not require students to be Federal or International Work Study eligible. There are approximately 45 academic assistant positions offered each year. This figure is subject to change based on the needs of each department. Job descriptions for the academic assistant positions are listed below.

Federal Work Study

The Federal Work Study program is a need-based financial aid program that provides jobs for students. The work-study award shown on the aid notice represents the maximum a student may earn under the program. It is based on 10 hours per week during the academic year. If a student chooses not to work, or works less than 10 hours a week, he or she must meet expenses from other resources. Work-study funds are limited and some students may be placed on a work-study wait list. Qualifying students must apply for financial aid by our priority deadline of February 1, 2017.
