Student Employment

Did you know you can work while going to college as a student employee? Eligible students can work part-time days or evenings right here on campus to earn extra money. 

How can I find a job & apply?

All student employment open positions are posted on the Terra State employment site. Complete an employment application and submit it to the Human Resources office located in the General Technologies Building, B208.

What are the requirements to become a student employee?

All student employees must be considered in good academic standing by maintaining a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0. In the case of a new student without a GPA, the first term of employment will be a probationary period with the expectation that this minimum will be met. Students not maintaining this minimum will not be eligible for student employment until the GPA has been improved to the 2.0 minimum. Any exceptions to this must be discussed and approved by the Assistant Manager of Human Resources/Payroll.

Students must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours to be eligible for student employment and should be degree or certificate seeking; this includes students who are registered as transfer students. Under normal circumstances, students are limited to a maximum of 20 hours per work week during periods of enrollment. Students may work during periods of non-enrollment provided they are enrolled in the next term. Student employment ends when a student finishes his/her coursework at Terra State (graduates, completes certificate and is not enrolled for the following term).

Most student employment jobs are designated for those who are eligible for the Federal Work-Study program. To have the best options, apply for Federal Work-Study through our Financial Aid office.
