There are many opportunities for a Messiah College student to have a job on campus. Student Employment at Messiah College includes both federal work study and institutional work assignments. Federal work study assignments are assigned to students who have filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have demonstrated financial need. Additionally, the College has an extensive institutional work program, where students do not need to demonstrate financial need via the standard need analysis formula. Both of these options provide numerous opportunities to students, with an average of nearly 1,000 academic year and 150 summer jobs being filled each year. Most student assignments average around 10 hours per week during the academic year and 40 hours per week during the summer.

All students considering an on-campus work assignment should read the Student Employment Handbook. Additional details on eligibility, locating available jobs, obtaining a job, payroll-related items, and more are available on this website and by contacting the Student Employment Office
