Hundreds of MSC students gain valuable work experience and help pay for the cost of their education in on-campus jobs through the college's Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Student Temp Services programs, and Morrisville Auxiliary Corporation (MAC).  See below for details about the eligibility standards and application process for each.   

On-campus positions are highly competitive so treat your on-campus job search as a general job search: apply early, make sure to fill out your applications completely and accurately, apply to multiple positions, and connect with Career Services for assistance.

Federal law requires you present proof of your identity and your authorization to work before you can begin your job. Find out what documents you need to present to be able to be hired.

Hiring information for Spring 2016:

Federal Work-Study (FWS)

Work-study jobs are available only to students awarded FWS as part of their 2015/16 Financial Aid package.  Students must actively seek positions (with our help, of course!) through CCN-Morrisville, our web-based jobs and internships database. Click here for instructions on using CCN-Morrisville.   We are expecting a limited number of FWS job openings for Spring 2016.  Currently known vacancies are now posted in CCN-Morrisville; additional ones may be available after the start of classes. 

All work-study awards are for an average commitment of eight hours a week, with compensation of $9.00/hour.  Students can earn up to, but not exceed, the full amount of their award. 

Visit our Federal Work-Study Employee Handbook for important information such as the documents that you need to bring to campus to get set up on the payroll (you can't start work until you have them), securing and completing timesheets, the payroll schedule, and procedures for securing a FWS award for future academic years.
