On-Campus Student Employment

The Career Management Center has taken steps to ensure student safety as we return back to campus. One of our biggest changes is reducing the amount of physical interaction between our office and students as much as possible and offering more remote career services.

One of the many services we provide is assistance with finding On-Campus Student Employment. We’ve implemented new guidelines to submit the on campus student employment application completely online

STEP 1

Before completing the online application, you need to know whether you qualify for University Regular Work Employment or Federal College Work-Study:

  • University Regular Work Employment – provides part-time employment for students enrolled at Southeastern.  Students are allowed to work up to 29 hours a week (amount of hours will be dependent on departmental budgets).
  • Federal College Work-Study (FCWS) – provides part-time employment for students who are enrolled at least half-time and demonstrate financial need. The maximum amount a recipient can earn under this federal program is determined by his/her financial need and availability of funds.  To be eligible, you must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
    • After filing for FAFSA, you can check Self-Service Financial Aid under “My Awards” to see if you have been awarded FCWS by the Financial Aid Office. If your financial aid file is complete and you are NOT awarded FCWS, you can contact the Financial Aid Office to see if you qualify.
    • You must be awarded work-study to hold a work-study position!

STEP 2

Once you’ve verified the type of work you are eligible for, you are ready to complete the online application below. Once complete and submitted, it will go to our careers@se.edu email for review by our staff.

  1. Review the list of current on campus positions available in different departments below. They are updated regularly, so be sure to check often if there are no current positions you are interested in.
