Work Study

Like its name implies, federal work-study pays you to work part time at GOCC or off campus while you attend school. It pays minimum wage, and you can work up to 20 hours per week. The amount of your actual work-study award depends on your financial need and the available funding.

To be considered for work-study, you must:

Smart and creative student planning and writing notes in her books at school inside classroom. One young teen girl reading, studying and learning knowledge in an educational class
  • Have a current Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file, along with any required follow-up paperwork
  • Have financial need
  • Be enrolled in at least six credit hours
  • Meet GOCC Satisfactory Academic Progress standard
  • Meet all federal financial aid eligibility requirements

If you are interested in work-study contact the GOCC Financial Aid Office at 269-294-4260 or via email.

The Financial Aid office will let you know if you qualify for federal work-study and if funds are available. The next step will be to learn what jobs are available by looking below and by reading the posted positions on the GOCC Concourse.

If you are hired following an interview with the supervisor, you will be required to complete necessary paperwork before starting your work study position. You will receive a paycheck every two weeks.

If you’re awarded federal work-study, you can earn up to the awarded amount. Once you do, you’re no longer eligible to work.
