On-Campus Student Employment

Southeastern Oklahoma State University offers On-Campus employment to hundreds of students each semester.  One of the many services that the Career Management Center (CMC) provides is assistance with finding On-Campus Student employment.  Work funds and opportunities are available to students in the form of a Federal College Work-Study or University Regular Work Student Employment.

This type of employment opportunity is convenient for students due to several factors:  Proximity to campus, flexible scheduling, and the opportunity to socially network with all departments on campus.  In addition to Regular Work Employment, CMC regularly receives job announcements from the community.

CMC has 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.

STEP 3

After your application has been reviewed by one of our staff members, the departments you’re interested in will be contacted and have access to your application.  In order for us to forward your application to the departments you would like to apply for, please complete the following steps:

  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.
  2. Email the Career Management Center at careers@se.edu and list the departments you would like us to forward your application to.
