Student Employment

Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study provides jobs for students with financial needs, allowing them to earn money to pay education expenses. Work study award amounts must be earned before they can be applied to the student account, so initial fees at registration will not be covered.

Approximately 300 students are awarded work study amounts each year at Delta State.

Most students work 8-10 hours per week. Paychecks are issued on the 15th of each month.

I qualify!
If you have been awarded Federal Work Study, follow these steps:

  1. Contact the department(s) that you would be interested in working for directly to determine if they have openings and would like to hire you for their department.
  2. Find an opening and complete any additional paperwork the department may have for you.
  3. Be prepared to show your original social security card and a picture ID.

Regular Student Employment

Regular student employment is the opportunity to work in a department on campus. Eligibility is not based on the incomes of the student or the family.

Approximately 100 students work in departments on campus as regular student employees. Any student is eligible for open positions.

Students interested in working on campus should contact department directly to check for available positions. Each department will instruct students how to apply for open jobs.

Students typically work 5-10 hours per week. Student workers are paid on the 15th of each month.
