Student Employment

Federal Work Study [FWS]

Federal Work-Study provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student’s course of study. There are many on-campus job opportunities in various departments. The maximum a student can work on-campus is twenty hours. Our on-campus jobs are typically very flexible as we understand the student’s main focus is their education. Students will get paid biweekly for hours that they worked.

Ringling College Student Employment

This program is provided to students who do not qualify for the federal work study program. To view available employment opportunities, go to College Central.
