Simpson College provides students with the opportunity to work part-time on or off campus through the Work-Study Program. Employment offers generally range between $1,000 and $1,500 per year, with the average student working 4-7 hours per week. The current wage rate is $7.25 per hour. The work-study offer is not a guarantee of employment. Students are responsible for applying for their desired positions and securing job placement through Handshake. Simpson, in partnership with area community service employers, is committed to using a portion of its federal work study funding to encourage participation in community service activities.
Student employment earnings are paid bi-weekly for the hours worked in the previous two-week period. Direct deposit to your checking or savings account for monthly pay is recommended and requires you to complete a direct deposit form. The amount of the work offer cannot be directly applied to your tuition, room and board bill; therefore, it is not possible for you to use your work offer money toward your first payment in the fall.
