Work Study 


Student Employment is an important source of financial aid for students. At Cuyahoga Community College, the Work-Study Program provides meaningful work experiences that develop desired attitudes and habits through varied job experiences resulting in self-confidence and self-sufficiency. The work experience is intended to compliment the students’ educational process and to enhance future employment.


What is a federal work-study job?


Whenever possible the work experience is related to the students’ educational program and career objectives. Student employment not only accommodates students’ needs, but also provides services necessary to the daily operation of the College.


The Work- Study Program provides employment opportunities on campus and at approved off-site locations. Work Study employment is federally funded and part of your financial aid package. You can review your award through your My Tri-C Space to determine if you are eligible, or contact the Student Financial Aid & Scholarships Office. Work-Study is awarded on a first come first served basis, and you can earn up to $6,000.00. A Work-Study award is NOT a guarantee of employment.
