Student Employment

Types of Student Employment Programs

The Bethel College Career & Leadership Development Office coordinates student employment programs. Students must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours during the fall/spring semesters. 

The Federal Work-study Program is a form of federal financial aid that promotes part-time on-campus employment for undergraduate students. Federal Work-study is based on financial need, as determined by the results of your FAFSA. Please be aware that work-study does not mean that you will be paid to study!

The Departmental Job Program includes jobs that are not subsidized by Federal Workstudy funds and are open to all students, regardless of financial need or FAFSA results.

Off-Campus employment opportunities are advertised through Handshake.

  1. Apply online by submitting your resume and interview with departments in which you are interested in working.
