Student Employment

Working and Learning

Blue Mountain Community College utilizes the talents of its students through part-time Student Employment. At the same time, student employees gain valuable work experience and have the opportunity to work within their field of study. 

 

In addition to Federal Work Study (FWS), BMCC also offers campus-funded student employment. The Financial Aid Office is responsible for administering both FWS and campus-based student employment funds (including general and department funds).

  • Submit a FAFSA each year;
  • Complete the BMCC financial aid verification (if selected for verification by the federal Department of Education) process and be awarded;
  • Have unmet need equivalent to the amount of work-study offered;
  • Maintain satisfactory Academic Progress at the time of award and each term;
  • Be enrolled 6 eligible credits each eligible term.
