Federal Work-Study is awarded based on the FAFSA. Those not eligible for Federal Work-Study may qualify for the Otis Work Study Program. Students can check their award on-line through Otis Self Service for federal work-study eligibility. Federal Work Study is not guaranteed and is available on a first come first served basis.
Standard work-study jobs start at $8.00 an hour for first-year work-study students. The wage is increased by $.50 every year the student is employed under the work-study program at Otis. Some positions have fixed hourly rate and will not give an annual increase. The rate is calculated according to years worked under the work-study program, not years spent as a student at Otis. However, like in the real world, some positions require more skill and experience, and supervisors may specify a higher rate of pay for certain positions. Your supervisor must complete a new job description if he/she plans on increasing your pay rate.
Students who are currently working can check Otis Self Service for their remaining work study balance.
For futher information about working on-campus, please visit the Center for Creative Professionals.
Otis Work Study
Otis work-study is typically awarded to students not eligible to recieve Federal Work Study. The funds are limited, and you are advised to apply in December using the Financial Aid Renewal Application.
The paperwork and process is similar to the Federal Work Study. You can check Self Service to see if you were awarded Otis Work Study funds. You can then search for a position with departments who have an opening for Otis work-study students.
International students requiring a social security number for employment should check with Center for Creative Professionals for additional instructions.
