On-Campus Student EmploymentCareer Services
Hundreds of MSC students gain valuable work experience and earn money for educational expenses in on-campus jobs through the college's Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Student Temp Services programs, and Morrisville Auxiliary Corporation (MAC). Details about the eligibility standards and application process for each follow.
On-campus positions are highly competitive, especially for first semester freshmen, so if you are interested in working, apply early and to multiple positions. The majority of jobs are for a maximum of eight to 10 hours a week to allow as many students as possible the opportunity to work.

Students must actively seek positions (with our help, of course!) through CCN-Morrisville, our web-based jobs and internships database.
