Work-Study and Student Employment
Pacific participates in the Federal Work-Study program. Students who are awarded Federal Work-Study are eligible to apply for on-campus work-study jobs. Receiving Federal Work-Study does not guarantee students a position on campus. Available work-study positions can be viewed through Tiger Jobs, Pacific's online job board. Incoming students can access Tiger Jobs through insidePacific (on the Living Tab) after August 23rd. In the meantime, new students should review the Student Employment FAQ's and begin preparing their resumes, so they will be ready to apply for positions after August 23rd.
As a condition of using Work-Study, federal regulations stipulate that a student can earn only as much Work-Study as they have been awarded for that academic year. In order to utilize Work-Study, your Financial Aid file must be complete with all financial aid requirements signed off. Once your financial aid file is complete, and you have been hired, Federal Work-Study Authorization Card may be picked up in the Office of Financial Aid.
Work-Study is available to students who are enrolled at least half-time:
|Enrollment Period||First Day Eligible to Work||Last Day Eligible to Work|
|Fall only||August 16, 2016||December 16, 2016|
|Fall/Spring||August 16, 2016||May 11, 2017|
|Spring only||January 16, 2016||May 11, 2017|
|Trimester students (Pharm D & DPT)||August 16, 2016||June 30, 2017|
Important: Please notify the Office of Financial Aid when making changes or adjustments to your employment.
On- and Off-Campus Employment
Many Pacific departments on campus also employ our students who are not eligible to receive funds through the Federal Work-Study program or have exceeded their Federal Work-Study allocation.
Because many local businesses rely upon Pacific students to fill positions within the local business community, opportunities for off-campus employment are available for our students.
