Sinclair offers students part-time employment in Regular Wage or Federal Work-Study opportunities. Regular Student Employment is available to any eligible student. Students must have a Federal Work Study award to apply for work study positions. Students who do not have a Federal Work Study award may contact a financial aid representative to see if they qualify.
Working on campus will not only provide income; it will foster responsibility, encourage you to budget your time wisely, and offer opportunities for learning and skill development. Students who choose to work on campus appreciate the convenience of job locations and the opportunity to become better acquainted with faculty and staff. They also like the fact that college employers are understanding and flexible about academic demands.
Federal Work-Study is a federal financial aid program based on need determined from information you provide on the FAFSA. Many departments prefer to hire work-study students since the employee's wage is drawn from federal funds.
Note: Federal work-study earnings are not credited to your Student Bursar account. For more information, please visit the Federal work study page.
Regular wage employment is for students who want to work on campus but who are not eligible for federal work-study.
