Student employment is funding that a student earns with a job, typically on campus.
As part of their financial aid award, students receive funds through the Federal Work Study Program.
All Work Study Forms must be completed and returned to the department supervisor before students can be authorized by the Financial Aid Office to begin work.
Job Listings Job listings for students receiving financial aid through the Federal Work Study Program or the Cabrini Work Grant Program are listed here at the beginning of each academic year.
In order to take advantage of these funding programs, students must secure a job and earn the allocated funds.
Students can review job postings, qualifications, duties, and responsibilities before directly contacting a departmental representative to arrange an interview.
Rules of Employment
Federal Work Study students cannot:
displace regular college employee positions
work more than one job unless given permission by the Financial Aid Office
work for employers in a personal capacity
be involved in the construction, operation, or maintenance of any part of a building used for religious worship or sectarian instruction
be paid for positions that are not normally paid by the College Example: if the College does not normally pay student teachers, then a federal work-study student cannot be paid as a student teacher.
Students must have federal work study awarded to them through the Financial Aid Office before they can work those funds.
Students in their final year of study cannot work beyond their last day of class.
Students must adhere to policies and procedures. Failure to comply could cause a student to be withdrawn from the program with no guarantee of later reinstatement.
Termination Students may be fired from their jobs if they abuse the privileges of their employment or otherwise conduct themselves in a manner inconsistent with expected College behavior.
A student who is fired from a Federal Work Study position will not be rehired through the program without a review by the Financial Aid Office or other College departments as deemed appropriate.
Students may quit their positions and should provide notice of quitting in writing to their hiring department with at least two week’s notice. Students who quit are not guaranteed re-employment in another position.
Students who intend to return to Cabrini College the following school year may work until June 30 of their current school year. However, they cannot work beyond June 30 without having been re-awarded and rehired for the new year.
