Get Started:

Interested in working on-campus?

Interested in working off-campus? 

Check out Purple Briefcase for current full and part time job opportunities from local employers who are interested in hiring an Onondaga student or alumni.

How do I apply for on-campus jobs?

Follow the application instructions within each individual job posting. You will either apply online, via email or in person, depending on the employer’s process.  The Federal Work-Study (FWS) grant is an excellent way to earn money for your books, supplies, and personal expenses while attending college, as well as gain valuable work experience!

Am I eligible for work-study?

The Financial Aid office will consider you for a work-study award once they receive your FAFSA and confirm you are making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). If you do not receive work-study as part of your financial award, you can let the Financial Aid office know you are interested in being considered for a work-study award by completing the Federal Work-Study Interest Form.
