Student Employment
Federal Work-Study Program
The Federal Work-Study Program is a program designed to provide qualified students the opportunity to pay part of their educational expenses by working a part-time job on campus or in a community service job off-campus. To be employed under this program, the student must: (1) be enrolled; (2) have completed all required forms with OSFP; (3) show evidence of need through the FAFSA; (4) maintain satisfactory academic progress while under this program; and (5) students selected for Federal Student Aid Verification must first complete the process.
All student employment positions are coordinated through the Student Employment Office located in the Office of Student Financial Planning. First-time Federal Work-Study students will be contacted by the Federal Work-Study Coordinator during the summer preceding fall semester regarding their employment options. Employment is not guaranteed and is the responsibility of the student to apply for positions and be hired. Students must complete an Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 within three days of starting work. Submit the completed form and original documents verifying identity to the OSFP.

Students who are awarded Federal Work-Study are given priority for on-campus employment. Students must complete an Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 within three days of starting work. Submit the completed form and original documents verifying identity to the OSFP.

Mercer Engineering Research Center (MERC)
Engineering and other technically oriented students are encouraged to seek part-time employment at the Mercer Engineering Research Center (MERC). MERC is the research and development arm of the School of Engineering and conducts fundamental and applied research and development in the physical, life, and mathematical sciences. The facility is located approximately 17 miles south of the Macon campus in Warner Robins, Georgia. Because of the classified nature of many of the projects supported by the U.S. government, U.S. citizenship may be required for employment. Applications for employment can be obtained directly from MERC.
