How do I get a Work Study Job?

If you have a Work Study allocation, you must:

  • Go to the Student Employment website┬áto find a job through SMC.
  • After you find a job that interests you, contact the supervisor for an interview. Print out the Student Employment/ Application/Contract and Payroll Forms from the SMC website.
  • Complete the "Student Section" and take it with you when you meet the potential supervisor of the job.
  • If you are hired, you will need to have the supervisor complete the rest of the application/contract.
  • You will also need to get a live fingerprint scan done at Campus Police. You can obtain the form at the Financial Aid Office.
  • Submit the completed packet of all forms along with your application/contract, pink copy or proof that you have submitted a live fingerprint scan and a copy of your signed social security card and drivers license (or other appropriate ID) to the Financial Aid Office.

PLEASE NOTE: Students may begin working only when the Financial Aid Office has sent an email to your new supervisor that you have been authorized to work.
