Work-Study at Pacific University

Award Types

Work-Study is awarded to students by the Office of Financial Aid and is redeemed as wages for work performed in qualifying jobs.

Students receive either a Pacific University Work-Study award or a Federal Work-Study award. Students receiving Pacific Work-Study are eligible to work only in on-campus positions, while students with Federal Work-Study are eligible to work on campus and/or at approved community service organizations off campus.

For information or clarification about a financial aid award, please email Stacie Englund in the Office of Financial Aid or call 503-352-2858. Questions about obtaining or searching for Work-Study jobs may be emailed to Julie Burris in the Career Development Center (CDC) or visit Chapman Hall on the Forest Grove campus.

Work-Study Position Types

As stated above, whether a student is eligible to work only on-campus or also in off-campus community service Work-Study positions, eligibility is determined by the type of Work-Study award he or she receives. On-campus positions are available in various University departments throughout the academic year, while community service positions are available in approved community-based, government and non-profit organizations with hiring deadline October 14, 2016. Questions specifically concerning off-campus community service Work-Study jobs should be directed to the CDC Internship Coordinator & Community Service Work-Study Coordinator, Melissa Vieira
