Work-Study

The College Work-Study Program provides eligible ACC students with the opportunity to work part-time in a community service position or a field related to their area of study. Work-study employees work up to 19 hours per week, receive a bi-weekly paycheck, and are paid $12.50 to $13.00 per hour (depending on their position).

To be eligible for work-study: You must show financial need on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and meet additional requirements and guidelines (listed below). Work-study is also limited, so it is best to apply early.

  • Student Eligibility Requirements
      • Complete the financial aid application process and demonstrate need based on federal guidelines.
      • Enroll in a minimum of six college credits in any term in which they occupy a work-study position.
      • Meet Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) standards each semester.
      • If awarded, pass a Criminal History Background Check and submit Human Resources paperwork.
      • If hired, students must abide by Work-Study Employee Guidelines.
  • Work-study Employee Guidelines
    • Once hired, students are ACC employees. They are expected to earn their award by performing job specific duties and abiding by the following guidelines:
      • Students must be enrolled in a least 6 credits on their declared degree plan. If their enrollment drops below half-time (6 credits), they are no longer eligible for work-study and must stop working immediately.
      • Students cannot start working until they have a timesheet on e-time.
      • Students cannot start working until at least one of their six total credits per semester has started.
      • Students cannot work more than the hours per week determined by the Financial Aid Office on their Interview Sheet (up 19 hours per week).
      • Students cannot work during scheduled class time.
      • Students must have a reasonable gap between class and work hours to allow them to arrive on time.
      • Students cannot work while school is not in session (e.g. intersession or college closure days due to holidays or the weather).
  • Eligibility for Non-Citizens and Undocumented Students
    • Non-citizens and undocumented students with Texas residency may follow these instructions to apply for state grants and work-study. You must also have authorization to legally work in the United States through the DACA program.

Part 1: Steps to Apply for Work-Study

Step 1: Complete the Financial Aid Application Steps
This includes submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA.GOV) and turning in any missing documents listed on Self-Service. On the FAFSA, say “Yes” to the question asking if you are interested in work-study.

Step 2: Accept Your Awards
Accept (or reject) your financial aid awards on Self-Service.

  • If you received a work-study offer, accept your award and continue to Part 2.
  • If you did not receive a work-study offer on Self-Service, you may add yourself to the work-study waitlist below. Adding your name to this waitlist does not guarantee you will receive a work-study offer on Self-Service or a job placement. If additional funds become available, the Financial Aid Office will offer work-study to eligible students on the waitlist. You can only add your name once per waitlist.
  • If you did not receive a work-study offer and have held a work-study position at ACC within the last year, contact the Financial Aid Office.

NOTE: If you cannot attend one of the scheduled orientations, contact the Financial Aid Office at the campus where you wish to be placed to conduct an individual orientation.

Step 3: Interview for a Position
Identify a position that interests you (see below for work-study positions) and get an Interview Form from the Financial Aid Office. Students will then be responsible for scheduling an interview with the department they hope to work for.

Step 4: Submit Employment Paperwork
Submit your employment paperwork, including proof of eligibility to work in the United States, to the Financial Aid Office.

Step 5: Start Working
The Financial Aid Office will notify you and your supervisor with the official start date of your position. You cannot start working until your employment paperwork is processed and you have an online timesheet on etime.
