If the new student is eligible for work-study, he/she is initially eligible to participate in the student employment (work-study) program. Continued eligibility depends on the student’s open and complete participation in the program.
The student must receive a Federal Work-Study or Keuka Work-Study Award as part of his/her financial aid package. It is the student’s responsibility to know if he/she has an award, the exact amount of the award, and if he/she is cleared through the Office of Financial Aid and eligible to start earning work-study dollars each academic year. Work-study is an opportunity, not a guarantee.
Before classes begin each semester, new students must attend a required student employment orientation session. Students will learn about the policies and procedures for student employment (work-study) and review Storm Tracker (Keuka’s Internet database for work-study, Field Periods and internships, part and full-time employment, and volunteer positions/opportunities). The student will learn:
how to register (create a profile),
how to view work-study positions,
how to create an on-line resume,
how to apply for positions, and
what is required to get hired for a work-study position. (The student is provided handouts to help him/her through the process.)
Remember: work-study is an opportunity, not a guarantee.
