Work Study

Federal Work-Study funding is awarded based on the FAFSA. Students who are not eligible for Federal Work-Study may qualify for the Otis Work Study Program. Check your award at Otis Self Service for federal work-study eligibility.  Federal Work Study positions are not guaranteed, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Campus jobs are posted on the job board.

Finding Student Job Openings

To find student job openings at Otis, please follow these steps.

  1. Go to the Otis Job board (https://otis.experience.com/emp/sblogin) and click on the blue “Sign in” button on the bottom right. Click on “Create an Account” and follow the steps to link to the job board. You will be contacted by CCP indicating that you are approved and then you can; to post your job opportunity.
  2. After selecting the student you want to hire, fill out a SEWA (Student Employment Work Agreement) form. This form replaces PA (Payroll Authorization) forms effective July 1, 2013. No PA forms will be accepted for student hires after this date. Give completed and signed SEWA form to the student you want to hire. Any incomplete forms will be returned and will delay the hiring process.
  3. Send student with completed SEWA form, I-9 form, and W-4 form, and 2 forms of ID (see last page of I-9 form for acceptable forms of ID) to Student Employment (AHMN103A).
  4. Please allow 2 weeks for processing. Students are not allowed to work prior to this time.
