Oxford Student Employment

​Student Employment is part of the Oxford College Office of Financial Aid, and it assists Oxford students with part-time Federal Work-Study and Institutional Work-Ship employment while they are enrolled in school. 

Oxford Federal Work-Study

Federal Work-Study is an employment program for undergraduate students contingent upon availability of federal funds. Eligibility is based on the federal methodology using the information provided on the FAFSA. The amount of your award is the maximum you can earn for the academic year.

Students typically work 20 hours per week, on a schedule determined by the student and supervisor. The hourly wage for Oxford College students is $8.50-9.50 per hour. Work-Study earnings will not appear as a credit on your student account; the money earned is deposited directly into your bank account.

The Student Employment office will notify you when you reach your award maximum. The department you work in has the option of either continuing your assignment and paying you solely from its departmental budget or ending your assignment altogether.
