Student Employment Programs
Working on campus is a great way to gain experience and skills.
Effective January 1, 2021, student workers will be paid $11 per hour!
ECC hires students to work in various offices and departments across the campus, from the admissions office to the arts center to the fitness center. Most student jobs involve 10 to 20 hours of work a week.
There are two types of student employment.
- Federal Work-Study positions are awarded based on financial need as determined by the FAFSA. You must be enrolled in at least six credit hours per semester and have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 to qualify.
- Institutional Work-Study is available to students who are enrolled in at least six credit hours and have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0. You do not need to be eligible for other forms of federal or state aid to work on campus.
