Request a Work-Study Position

What is Work-Study?

The Federal College Work-Study Program (FWS) and the Texas Work-Study Program (TXWS) provide ACC with funds to hire eligible students to work while attending ACC.  The goal of the work-study program is to encourage students to work and earn money while attending ACC.  Work-study is a proven tool for retention and persistence.

How do students apply for Work-Study?

To be eligible for a work-study assignment, students must complete the financial aid application process, demonstrate need based on federal guidelines, and enroll for a minimum of six college credits in any term in which they occupy a work-study position. Students must be meeting Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress standards to be eligible for funding consideration.

How are Work-Study students paid?

Work-study students earn $11.50 to $12.00 per hour (effective Fall 2018). The Financial Aid Office assigns the pay level based on the type of work involved in the work-study position.  Departments do not need to worry about finding the resources to pay these students; the Financial Aid Office takes care of that through our allocation of governmental funding. Funds to pay these students come from the federal or state government and are matched by ACC. 

The number of hours a student may work each semester varies based on their award amount. The maximum that a student may work is 19 hours per week. Students may not work more hours than indicated on their Work-Study Interview Form.  The student obtains this form from a Campus Financial Aid Office; it is not available online.

How do I request a Work-Study student?

ACC offices interested in hiring work-study students must complete and submit the Request for a College Work-Study Employee Requisition Form that most closely corresponds with the work-study position they wish to fill. Links to the various College Work-Study Employee Requisition Forms are provided below:

 You may now submit the form online through email. When you click the submit button on the form, select the email program of your choice to send the form.  If your browser does not allow online submission, please email the complete requisition form to sflood@austincc.edu and latisha.marion@austincc.edu.

It is highly recommended you use the "Career Pathway/Area of Study" Requisition form to establish job duties with an emphasis on major/career development.  To the extent possible, ACC will try to provide work-study jobs that complement and reinforce each recipient’s educational program or career goals.  If you have questions about how to establish a "Career Pathway/Area of Study" position, please contact Jason Briseno at jbrisen2@austincc.edu

Please note:  Completing a College Work-Study Employee Requisition does not guarantee that an office will receive a work-study student. ACC has many more work-study positions than students waiting to fill them. However, the Financial Aid Office will do its best to honor all requests.  Students may decline to accept a work-study position that requires them to leave their home campus.
