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.
After you have been hired for a work-study position you will need to make an appointment with the Financial Aid office to complete required employment forms and documents. See the Student Employment Handbook [pdf]: Student Hiring and Appointment Process for more information.
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.
The Financial Aid office is responsible for the awarding and enforcing of Federal and State laws and institutional policies.
Departments post Work-Study opening positions to the Hawkeye Community College Financial Aid website. The Financial Aid office does not recommend or represent employers or guarantee position information.
Students are responsible for evaluating each individual off-campus employer’s hiring and employment practices.
The Financial Aid office provides employment practice recommendations to all departments and agencies but is not responsible for their implementation.
