On-Campus Student EmploymentCareer Services
Hundreds of MSC students gain valuable work experience and help pay for the cost of their education 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 students should apply to multiple positions, when possible, and use an average of no more than eight hours a week when calculating potential earnings.

Documents that need to be presented can be found through this link. Please note that federal law requires that all documents must be originals.
