Work-Study Positions

Work-study funds are based on need. To interview for work-study positions you must have received a work-study award email.

You may only be employed for one work-study position at a time. See the Student Employment Handbook [pdf] to learn more about switching to a different position or ending employment as a work-study student.

Because of the limited funding, it’s possible that more students will be awarded than there are positions available.

If there is an area/department that you would like to work in and it is not set up for work-study, please have that staff or faculty member contact the Financial Aid office. We will check and see if that position could be eligible and funded by the Work-Study program.

Hawkeye Community College requires certain departments to conduct mandatory background checks before hiring. If you have been pre-approved to work in one of these departments, you will be required to sign a Background Check form.
