Types of Student Jobs

There are 2 types of on-campus employment at Rollins for undergraduate students: Federal Work Study positions and Department Funded Student positions. The only difference is the funding source and student eligibility. Certain departments also offer on-campus Graduate Assistantships to Rollins graduate students.

Federal Work Study Positions
Federal Work Study (FWS) is a federally-funded financial aid program awarded to students based on their eligibility determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) along with other financial aid criteria. Funding for this program is limited. Students are awarded a specific amount, and the federal government subsidizes the wages to the employer. This means that Rollins pays a portion of the wages and FWS pays the remaining portion.

Federal Work Study positions are available only to those students who have received communication from the Office of Financial Aid and/or the Office of Student Employment for their work study eligibility for the current academic year. If you have not received this communication, you are not eligible for Federal Work Study positions.

Note: The receipt of a financial aid award does not guarantee a job.

Department Funded Positions
Students without federal funding can find jobs in many of the same departments as Federal Work Study students. Rollins departments pay in full for these students' wages, and the conditions of employment are the same as with work study. All Rollins students are eligible to apply for these positions, regardless of financial need.

Graduate Assistantships
Graduate Assistantship positions vary widely depending on the hiring department. Some pay an hourly rate, while others provide a stipend or tuition assistance. Please check the Rollins student job posting website for Graduate Assistantship postings and their individual characteristics.


Steps to Apply

1. Search
For available positions, visit On-Campus Student Employment Positions. New positions will be posted daily, so make sure to check back often.

Note: Work Study positions are only available to students who have received an email indicating their federal work study eligibility based on their FAFSA. Ineligible students will be withdrawn from the work study applicant pools.

2. Apply
After finding a position you wish to apply to, you will be asked to login or create an account (apply without Vitae). Keep in mind that this is separate from your FoxID and password, and will be used when applying for on-campus jobs. Upload a resume and/or cover letter and proceed through the application process.

3. Submit
After completing the application you will be prompted to submit it for review. Once you get a confirmation number on the screen you know that your application has been successfully submitted. Make sure to keep an eye on your email for possible requests for interviews. It may be a few weeks before you hear back about your application as departments have many applications to review, so don’t let this discourage you or keep you from applying to other positions. Remember, the more you apply, the higher your chances of being hired!

**Once you accept a work study position, your applications to other work study positions will be withdrawn. Students cannot have more than one work study position at a time.

• Different types on on-campus employment at Rollins
• Expectations of a student employee
