If you plan to seek part-time campus employment while at Augustana, the Career Development Office is a great place to start. We offer:
Finding a Job
In August, after fall term is in session, we recommend that you visit the Career Development Office on the first floor of Olin to find out about job postings from academic departments and administrative offices. First-year students will have the opportunity to apply for jobs in Dining Services at Orientation and Registration.
Augustana does not assign or guarantee jobs. We believe it is important for the student to pursue employment that matches his/her skill sets and interests. This allows both the department to find the ideal student employee and the student to find a more satisfying work environment.
Is Working On Campus Only About Money?
Earning money to help cover college expenses may be a factor, but there are other advantages to having a job on campus. Being employed on campus will help you develop good work habits, communication skills, and time management. It is also an opportunity to network with faculty and administrators and meet other students. You may also gain career experience. For example, if you are majoring in biology, you may find a job as a lab assistant. The skills you learn may be transferable to a position after graduation.
All student employment positions will be paid at the current minimum wage of $8.25. Students can schedule up to 9-10 hours per week based on the student's availability and the needs of the employing office.
Federal Work Study Program
Federal Work Study (FWS) is a need-based financial aid program that allows a student to work on campus to earn money for college expenses. Part-time job opportunities are coordinated through the Career Development Office in Olin. These job opportunites will also be listed on the job postings website coming soon.
Non-Federal Work Study Employment
Students who do not qualify for Federal Work Study, based on eligibility determined by completion of the FAFSA, have the opportunity to work on campus through general employment. Many non-work study students are hired because they possess a particular skill. Specialized jobs might include lab proctors, graders, or translators.
Before you can begin to work on campus, you must complete:
And you must show the following documents:
You will have the opportunity to complete the I-9 and the W4 at Orientation and Registration. If you do not have a U.S. Passport or Driver's License (with accompanying items) at that time, you will need to take these documents to the Payroll Office in Sorensen Hall when you arrive on campus in the fall. These documents must be on file before you
