Federal Work Study is available to US citizens and eligible non-citizens who qualify, based on financial need. The amount of Federal Work Study that each student qualifies for will be listed on the financial aid award letter. The amount is usually enough for about 4 hours of work a week throughout the academic year, or about $130 per month, which is an award of $1,000 to $1,200.
Finding a job
MUM offers jobs providing opportunities for growth in areas such as administration, community service, arts, sustainable living, recreation and sports, meditation supervision, information systems, digital media, library, bookstore, student activities, and other academic departments such as music and math. Work-study jobs are based on first come, first served availability and therefore are not guaranteed.
The Jobs List shows the department, salary, a brief job description and contact information. Jobs are also posted at the Human Resource Office, Room 105 in Henn Mansion.
Students who have financial aid awards are encouraged to look through the posted jobs either in Henn Mansion or on-line, and then come to the Human Resource Office in Henn Mansion to obtain the necessary forms before applying for a job.
The student may then contact the departments offering jobs, make an appointment for an interview, and if offered a position, the supervisor signs the top form of the financial aid packet. The student then returns to the Human Resource Office to complete the paperwork and receive a time sheet.
Once the forms are filled out and then signed by the student and the supervisor, a pink copy is issued to the student to give to his supervisor to notify him/her that this student is eligible to start working. Job supervisors evaluate work performance.
The Human Resource Office supplies the time sheets that each student submits to their supervisor by the last day of each month. Subsequently, time sheets are sent to the students’ mailboxes every month at the beginning of the month, or to the student’s off-campus residence. Students who do not have a mailbox on campus are requested to provide stickers with their name and address.
