Welcome to the MHCC Student Employment Office (SEO). The mission of the MHCC Student Employment Office is to promote student success and persistence by offering valuable educational work experiences that:
- Develop employment skills and career goals
- Complement and enhance academic learning
- Make valuable contributions to the MHCC campus community
- Provide financial support to reduce student debt
To achieve that mission, we offer part-time jobs on and off campus to eligible students. There are two types of Student Employment positions at MHCC:
Federal Work-Study positions (FWS): FWS employees are paid from their FWS award, which is a needs-based award granted to eligible students as part of their financial aid package. Not every student receives Work Study funding, and eligibility is
determined primarily by information on your FAFSA. You must apply for financial aid by submitting a FAFSA to determine if you are eligible for FWS. For more info see our FAQ page.
Student Aide (SA): SA employees can do the same types of jobs as FWS, but they are paid out of departmental funds vs. financial aid. Because of this funding, there are far fewer SA jobs on campus. If you do not qualify for FWS, you may
stop by different offices on campus and ask for work. Sometimes MHCC staff members will create an SA position that suits your skills and interests. The Student Employment Office staff can also assist you with searching for SA jobs. For more info see
our FAQ page.
