Bycompleting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the academic year and were determined to be eligible for federal financial aid. Federal Work-Study is awarded to students with the greatest need who have met the priority filling deadline and have indicated on the FAFSA that they are interested in employment as part of their financial aid award. Students must re-apply every year to be considered and must indicate their preference for part-time employment on the FAFSA.
A wide variety of jobs are available through the FWS program. Work-Study students are involved in many areas inside and outside the college. An effort is made to place students in positions that will utilize their skills and interests while they earn funds that assist with their personal expenses.
The college also offers a limited number of off campus positions with local non-profit agencies as part of our Community Service Learning Program. These positions are designed to give the FWS student a broader work experience while at the same time improving the quality of life for community residents.
The Office of Career Advancement will hold a FWS Job Fair in August of each academic year. Students may attend the FWS Job Fair to meet with prospective employers both on-campus or off-campus employers.
Work-Study positions are posted throughout the year on e-Recruiting (www.mc.experience.com), a centralized online database provided by the Office of Career Advancement. While every Monroe student is given an account to access e-Recruiting, each student is encouraged to visit the OCA, meet with their Advisor and have their resume approved and uploaded to the e-Recruiting Database. Oncea resume has been approved, students are given full access to the system to search and apply for available Work-Study positions.
The Federal Work Study link can be accessed from the Offices of Career Advancement or the campus Financial Aid Office web pages. The FWS webpage contains job announcements, and serves as a resource to both FWS students and supervisors. The website contains important information on Financial Aid, FWS Employee Procedures, Payroll, and the Bursar’s offices, as well as electronic copies of the FWS Handbook. FWS timesheets, evaluations and payroll information will also be available on the FWS webpage.
