Student workers are important members of the Brevard College community. We view campus employment as an essential part of your education and professional growth. Through campus employment, you have the opportunity to acquire transferable skills and expertise that build resumes and launch careers as well earn funds to pay towards your education.
Having a job on campus is exceptional part of the Brevard experience. Whether you are giving tours, answering phones, assisting the IT department, working in the dining hall or the operations crew, filing paperwork, assisting at athletic events, or working with the theatre, you will find a great connection to the Brevard community. Plus you will gain valuable work experience and earn money toward tuition and other expenses.
We host a Work-Study Fair each Fall semester for students awarded Federal or State work study. At the work-study job fair, you will have the opportunity to meet with various departments on campus and express interest directly to them for a work study position. We also have a limited number of off campus employment opportunities available for students eligible for Federal work-study. These are available on a first come, first served basis to students that qualify and are interested.
- Please note that a work-study award does not guarantee you employment on campus. You are expected to adhere to a level of responsibility and accountability in each work-study role assigned. Returning students may be requested to stay in a work-study placement after the completion of a successful semester/year. Upperclassman without placement are expected to participate in the work-study job fair in the fall to acquire placement.
- Most new students will expect to begin working on campus with our largest work-study sites; admissions, dining services, operations, campus life, athletic department or library.
- Campus employment hours vary depending on the department/position, but you can expect approximately 5 – 10 hours per week around your academic schedule.
- The Financial Aid Office located in Beam Administration Building, handles award distribution and payroll details are handled through the Payroll Office located in the second level of Beam Administration. These offices share a commitment to help you succeed in the Campus Work-Study Program. Work study placement and training is handled by the Office for Career Development in Coltrane Commons.
