Student Employment

TVCC participates in the Federal Work-Study Program

Federal work-study provides part-time jobs for undergraduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay educational expenses.

TVCC has a NEW process to get a work-study job...

Each fall, we will hold a work-study job fair. Students who have been awarded Federal Work-Study can come and interview with any of the potential employers from on and off campus in one location and at one time. We hope this will help us do a better job of matching up the students who want to work with the available jobs.

Who can be employed in the Federal Work-Study Program?

Only students who have completed a FAFSA application and have received an offer of federal work-study funding in their award package can be employed in the Federal Work-Study Program. If you have been offered work-study funding, you may compete for an on- or off-campus work study position.

When will the work-study job fair be held?

The job fair will be held at the beginning of Fall quarter.

What jobs are available?

You will need to attend the job fair to see the available jobs.

What if I can't make the event?

It is anticipated that all work-study jobs will be taken by the end of the job fair. If you want to use your work-study funding you will have to be present. Also, you must attend the job fair at the location at which you would like to work. Employers will either be at Ontario or Caldwell, not both.

When can I start work and how much can I work?

If you are hired for a position at the job fair, you may begin working as soon as Human Resources and Financial Aid have processed your paperwork. This will usually take a day. You cannot work more than 19 hours per week nor can you exceed your total award for the term.

Can any student work in a federal work-study position?

No. Work-study designated jobs are available ONLY to students who are eligible for the Federal Work-Study program.

Can any work-study student work in a "community service" position?

Yes, there are some work-study positions that are based in the community.  You will need to attend the job fair to see the positions available.

What if I don't get hired or choose not to use my work-study funding?

Work-study jobs and funding are limited. There will be many students who do not get to use this award. In many instances you can convert your work-study funding into loans. If you are interested in doing this please come by the financial aid office.

Time Sheet

If you do get a work-study job you will need to fill out a time-sheet with your supervisor.
