Student Work Program
Student employment is an integral part of the financial aid program at AWC. Eligibility is based on financial need and work abilities. Students are expected to enroll full-time, maintain satisfactory academic progress and perform their jobs in a satisfactory manner. Since campus jobs are limited, some students will have to seek off-campus work.
