Students on financial aid with federal work-study/campus work in their financial aid award have first priority
for all campus jobs. These students have been offered a work-study opportunity in their award letter by the College to meet their need for aid.
Students with Federal Work-Study may work on or off-campus, while students with Campus Work-Study may only work on-campus. Please refer
to your award letter or BannerWeb to identify the type you have.
NOTE: First-year work-study students are limited to working for Residence and Dining Services or as America Reads/America Counts Tutors (if they have
Federal Work-Study). They are not eligible for any other campus jobs, which are reserved for upperclass students.
Those who do not have priority for jobs include:
* Graduate students
* Students who have been offered a loan only as financial aid
* Students who receive no financial aid at all
* Students already holding STRIDE, AEMES, Intern (OCIP, Kahn, Mellon)), Head Resident, House Coordinator or House Community Advisor positions
Those students listed above may be eligible to work at temporary spot jobs. In special circumstances, a non-work-study student may be hired for a
position, but only for a semester at a time, and only if she is uniquely qualified or if no work-study student can be found who is willing and
able to do the job. Non-aid students are only eligible to keep that job for one semester, then it must be re-advertised for aided students.
Students are no longer eligible to work on campus as of the date they graduate, withdraw, or go on leave from the College. Prior to leaving the
College, a student must immediately submit her timesheet online. January graduates may not work after the last day of exams in December. All academic
year work-study ends on the last day of finals in the spring. Students must submit all online timesheets by the last scheduled academic year payroll
It is the student's responsibility to locate her own campus job to fulfill this portion of her aid package. In an effort to offer work-study students
a wide range of options, employers are must advertise any available student jobs with the Student Employment Office until October 1
at the start of each academic year and for two weeks into the spring semester.
No student, whether on aid or not, may hold more than one 'full-time' job. This means that if a student is
paid a stipend for a position such as STRIDE or House Community Advisor, or if she has a campus job already providing her with 10-12 hours per week,
she may not also hold a second campus job. Students may choose to combine two permanent jobs as long as the total number of regularly worked hours do
not exceed approximately 12 hours per week. The limit of one primary job per student is to insure equity and opportunity among ALL students at Smith
and has no bearing on whether the student is on financial aid or not.
