Find an On-Campus Job

Work Study is a form of financial aid, for which you must qualify. When you find a position you are interested in, please make an appointment with the Student Employment Specialist, Julie Walker in the Career Center by calling 760.795.6772. Prior to meeting with the Student Employment Specialist, please print and complete the Student Employment Intake Sheet.

Federal Work Study students may apply only for on-campus positions and should bring a copy of their Award Notification to their appointment with the Student Employment Specialist. For additional information on federal work study, please visit the Financial Aid website or contact Financial Aid directly at 760.795.6711. Once you have accepted the award, it is your responsibility to begin an active on-campus job search, maintaining communication with the Career Center.  If you aren't persistently working with the Career Center to find your on-campus job, you run the risk of losing your award money.

All MiraCosta College student workers should become familiar with the Student Worker Manual (PDF). This manual was developed to aid you, the student, in understanding the policies and procedures associated with working at MiraCosta College.
