Pitt-Johnstown offers three work programs to students, the Federal Work Study Program, Campus Employment, and the PHEAA State Work Study Program. You may choose to work in one of many departments on-campus or in a library or business off-campus while learning skills that are beneficial to finding future employment. Working while taking classes offers many advantages to you. You will learn time management skills, will earn money, and will gain work experience that can be a great reference for a resume.
Federal Work Study Program You must show financial “need” in order to qualify for the program. Financial need is determined by completing the FAFSA. You are paid $7.25 an hour and work 10 hours a week during the Fall and Spring terms. Your schedule is flexible which allows you to work around your classes. You may apply for Federal Work Study by completing the FAFSA before the April 1 deadline date and indicating on the FAFSA that you would be interested in student employment. At noon the day before the first day of classes, you may find a job by checking the positions posted on the Financial Aid Office website. You then interview with the supervisor listed, and if hired, you are placed on the University’s payroll so that you can receive a monthly paycheck. You are not guaranteed a position, and all jobs are filled on a first come first serve basis. Full-time and part-time positions are available during the summer.
