Student Employment Opportunities


IMPORTANT - Please Read

Welcome to the On-Campus Student Employment website. Below is a list of available on-campus jobs from various campus departments. At the top of each job description you will see the words *Federal Work Study and/or *Student Help. Carefully read each definition and decide which one best fits your qualifications.

FEDERAL WORK STUDY (FWS)

FWS is only available to students who have applied for and received a Financial Aid Award Letter with a Federal Work Study allotment. If you are an F-1 Visa student, you may not apply for FWS positions. FWS students are paid 100% through their Financial Aid Award. F-1 Visa students cannot apply for FWS positions.


STUDENT HELP

All SMC students can apply for Student Help jobs as long as they are enrolled in at least 12 Units.

F-1 Visa students can ONLY apply for “Student Help” positions. Many of these positions require that you already have a Social Security Card. (For more information regarding attaining a Social Security Card please visit the International Student Center located in Counseling Village near Pearl Street). If it is not already stated in the job advertisement, ask the interviewer if they will sponsor you for a Social Security Card if hired.
 

Payment Schedules:

All on-campus positions pay $10 per hour. Students may work up to 20 hours per week during the Fall and Spring semesters. If the department that you are working for has Student Help funds you may be able to work during the Summer and/or Winter. You will need to discuss this with your supervisor.
