Work Study

College Unbound is excited to offer work-study opportunities for currently enrolled students who have a valid FAFSA on file for the year. Work-study offers flexible hours, usually between 5-10 hours/week, as students work directly with members of the College Unbound Staff. The wages are $15/hour.

Next Steps:

Please review the job descriptions below. Students who are interested in one of the available work-study positions should email the Financial Aid department at [email protected] for more information. Students must have a current year FAFSA on file. Hours are determined between the student and the supervisor and can be adjusted to meet the student’s academic and personal needs and availability. Work-study students will work with the College Unbound/Met HR department to fill out I-9 and W-4 forms. Check with Allen Cowett for more information on that front.
