Seattle Pacific University is proud to sponsor a large on-campus
student employment program. Student labor is a critical resource
for numerous departments across campus. Student employees perform
a variety functions and are vital to the success of the University.
There are two student employment programs on campus: the Federal
Work Study program and the institutional work study program. The Federal Work
Study program, authorized by Congress in 1964, is designed to promote
the part-time employment of students. Eligibility is based on demonstrated
financial need as determined by an evaluation of the FAFSA (Free
Application for Federal Student Aid form). The Student Employment
Office, located in Student Financial Services, monitors student
earnings under the Federal Work Study program. Eligible Federal
Work Study students and the University must maintain compliance
with Federal Work Study regulations.
The institutional study program is available to those students who do
not demonstrate financial need based on the FAFSA form. Student
earnings for the institutional work study program come directly from University
funding. Student employees are paid every other week through the Student Payroll office.
