A campus job is part of every offer of financial assistance from Vassar College. Financial aid recipients receive an allocation for either Federal Work-Study (federally funded) or Institutional Work Study (Vassar-supplied employment funds). Students on financial aid receive priority in the job registration process. After the first month of each semester, the remaining jobs are made available to non-financial aid students.
Jobs on campus cover a wide range of activities, such as shelving books in the library, office work in administrative and academic offices, computer center services, and faculty interns. Students with a Federal Work-Study allocation who are interested in community service work also have the option of applying for off-campus community service work-study (CSWS) jobs.
On average students can expect to work approximately 8-8.5 hours per week.
