Work-Study and Student Employment

Federal Work-Study

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 21st. 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 21st.

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 Financial Aid.

Note: Please notify the Office of Financial Aid when making changes or adjustments to your employment.

Work-Study is available to students who are enrolled at least half-time:

  • Undergraduates Enrolled Fall/Spring (August 16 - May 8)
  • Undergraduates Enrolled Fall only (August 16 - December 13)
  • Undergraduates Enrolled Spring only (January 3 - May 8)
  • Pharm. D. and DPT (Doctor of Physical Therapy) students enrolled in 3rd trimester only (August 16 - June 30)

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 position within the local business community, opportunities for off-campus employment are available for our students.
