Types of Student Employment

Federal Work-Study and Community Service Program

Description: Employment on and off campus for students in good standing who have been assigned jobs as part of their aid package. This program does not assign students a particular job, but those qualified for this program are likely to find a job. Students who can cover the authorized earnings expectation from other sources may choose not to work.

Jobs: Hourly rate of $8.25 or $8.60. Rate is determined by the nature/specialization of the work. Check is sent directly to student.

How to apply: File student employment information with the Student Employment Office; be sure I-9-U.S. form is completed and on file. Please note that each student only needs to complete the W-4 and I-9 forms once while working at Drew University. Conduct your own job search, consulting with the office supervisor, who runs a clearinghouse on available jobs. Once hired, obtain clearance from the Student Employment Office. Clear each job separately, if more than one. Students interested in off-campus Community Service employment should contact the Career Planning and Placement Office.

Procedures & Contact Information

Students may not apply for positions prior to arriving on campus

Students may participate in any of several part-time university employment programs, for which the federal government appropriates funds for post-secondary institutions under the Federal College Work/Study and Community Service Program. Under the FWSP, students are hired on campus in part-time jobs that range from clerical positions to career-related work. Eligibility is determined through the filing of the FAFSA. A number of other campus-based, part-time employment opportunities are available to students through the Office of Student Employment. In addition, a variety of off-campus employment opportunities may be available through the Career Center.

The Federal Immigration and Control Act of 1986 requires Drew to certify identity and determine the eligibility of every employee for the FWSP, including students who work at Drew or in a Drew-referred job. Therefore, all students who work at Drew (and/or their spouses who work) must file in advance of their employment an I-9 form with the Student Employment Office. Along with this form we’ll need a copy of your passport, or your driver’s license and social security card. Other forms of identification are also accepted, please call the Office of Financial Assistance for further details. We also require that you fill out a W-4 form for tax filing purposes. Both forms can be picked up at the Office of Financial Assistance, on the second floor of the Tilghman House, or downloaded from our Web site.
