Working On Campus

Career Services

The following information is relevant to current MSC students only. Employment opportunities for non-students are found on the College's Human Resources page.  

Hundreds of MSC students gain valuable work experience and earn money for educational expenses in on-campus jobs through the college's Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Student Temp Services programs, and Morrisville Auxiliary Corporation (MAC).  Details about the eligibility standards and application process for each follow.   

On-campus positions are highly competitive, especially for first semester freshmen, so if you are interested in working, apply to multiple positions and as soon as positions open. The majority of jobs are for a maximum of eight to 10 hours a week to allow as many students as possible the opportunity to work. 

Documents required for hiring:

USCIS, a department of the US Department of Homeland Security, requires that all employees, including students, present original documentation of proof of identity and work authorization before beginning a job. The specific documents required can be found through this link. Copies or faxes of documents cannot be accepted, just originals, per Federal law.   

Hiring information for 2017/18:

Federal Work-Study (FWS)

FWS positions are open only to students awarded Federal Work-Study (FWS) in their 2017/18 Financial Aid letter, which can be found through Web for Students. FWS will be indicated as a line item on the letter for students who were been awarded it. 

Students must actively seek positions (with our help, of course!) through CCN-Morrisville, the College's web-based jobs and internships database. Our on-line instructions provide detailed steps and screenshots on how to create an account in CCN-Morrisville and search for positions there. Students are encouraged to apply early and to multiple positions to ensure success in the search process. 

Please note that FWS awards cannot be credited to outstanding MSC balances due. Instead, student employees are paid bi-weekly for actual hours worked at a rate of $9.75/hour. The average commitment is seven hours a week. Students can earn up to, but not exceed, the full amount of their award. For assistance, contact us by calling 315.684.6615 or e-mailing robackba@morrisville.edu.  

Student Temp Services 

Student Temp Services jobs are in departments across the campus. Many require specific technical skills, such as working with dairy cows, horses, or technologies, or experience, including having taken and done well in a given class or having been a student for at least a semester, with a limited number having more general requirements. The pay rate is $9.75/hour for most positions. Student Temp Services jobs require an average commitment of six to ten hours a week and are typically for the length of the academic year, although some may be for more limited periods. 

Current Student Temp Services jobs are posted in CCN-Morrisville. Click here for instructions on finding positions there. Questions can be directed to CareerServices@morrisville.edu or 315.684.6615.

Hiring for Resident Assistant (RA) positions in MSC residence halls is done in the middle of the semester before the position would start (mid/late October for Spring semester, mid March for Fall semester).  Any vacancies at the beginning of a semester will be posted in CCN-Morrisville.     

Morrisville Auxiliary Corporation (MAC)

MAC, which is related to the College, but a separate legal entity, hires for student support in dining facilities, the IcePlex, and other service areas.  MAC is the largest student employer on campus, and offers the greatest number of weekend and evening hours. Pay rate for most positions is $9.75/hour.

Applications can be be done on-line through the Student Employment page of their website (the link is found in the left-hand column of the page), or in person in the MAC Business Office in Hamilton Hall; after the start of the semester, the latter is the preferred option. Only completed applications will be considered. Follow up should be done directly with MAC at their Hamilton Hall office or by calling 315.684.6047.
