Over 1,350 students work on campus to help with their college expenses.
Some students are awarded work-study as part of their financial aid package.
Even if you're not awarded work-study, you can still get a job on campus. Students work in all kinds of settings on campus ranging from shooting photos at football games to driving the Bethel shuttle to serving coffee in the Royal Grounds.
Qualifying for Work-Study
After you apply for aid through Bethel and complete your FAFSA, you’ll receive your financial aid package letting you know if you’re eligible for work-study.
You are not required to accept work-study if it’s offered to you.
Your Earning Potential
The amount of work-study you're awarded reflects your maximum earning potential. An offer of up to $2,500 in work-study doesn’t guarantee that you'll earn the full amount. What you earn will depend on your pay rate and the number of hours you work throughout the year.
Campus jobs pay a minimum of $7.45/hour (2012-2013 rates), and you can work anywhere between 6-15 hours per week. Typical annual earnings range from $1,300-2,500.
