Aims Community College participates in the Federal Work-Study and the Colorado Work-Study programs. Eligible students can work part-time (up to 20 hours per week) to earn money to help pay for their education. Whenever possible, the work-study programs encourage community service work and work related to the student’s course of study. Jobs are available both on and off-campus. A FAFSA must be completed to determine eligibility for work-study.
Students employed through work-study programs earn an hourly wage which may change each year. Please reach out to the Office of Student Employment for current pay rates. The amount that can be earned depends on the type of work the student does and the skills required for the position, the amount of the school’s funding level and the amount of the student’s work-study award. Work-study employees are paid by the hour on a monthly basis on the last business day of the month.
The Work-Study program is run through the Office of Student Employment located in the Office of Financial Aid on the Greeley Campus. Although students can be awarded work-study, they are not guaranteed a job. Contact the Office of Student Employment if you have been awarded financial aid and would like to be considered for work-study. You may email or call the Office of Student Employment at firstname.lastname@example.org or (970) 339-6548.
