On-Campus Student Employment

Career Services

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 early and to multiple positions. 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 all employees, including student employees, to present proof of identity and work authorization before beginning a job.  Documents that need to be presented can be found through this link.  Per Federal law, all documents must be originals. 

Hiring information for 2016/17:

Federal Work-Study (FWS)

As of mid-September, students who want to be considered for an FWS award can meet with Financial Aid 8 am - 10 am, Mondays and Thursdays, to determine if an award can be made at this time. Students already awarded Federal Work-Study (FWS) in their 2016/17 Financial Aid package can apply to FWS-designated positions immediately. 

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 in it.  For assistance, contact us by calling 315.684.6615 or e-mailing robackba@morrisville.edu.  

It is important to note that FWS awards cannot be credited to outstanding MSC balances due . Instead, students are paid bi-weekly for actual hours worked at a rate of $9.75/hour through December 31, with an increase to $10.75 starting January 1, 2017. The average commitment is seven hours a week. Students can earn up to, but not exceed, the full amount of their award. 

Student Temp Services 

Student Temp Services jobs are in departments across the campus. Many require specific experience such as working with dairy cows, horses, or technologies, with a few having more general requirements. The pay rate is $9.75/hour for most positions, with some exceptions. 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. 

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

Resident Assistant (RA) positions in MSC residence halls are posted in CCN-Morrisville each semester. Hiring for these positions is done in the middle of the semester before the position would start (e.g., late October for Spring semester positions), with no or few positions open at the beginning of a semester.  

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 $9.00/hour.

Students can submit an application as soon as they have a class schedule for Fall 2016.  Applying to MAC jobs can be done on-line through the Student Employment page of their website, or in person in the MAC Business Office in Hamilton Hall. 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.
