The Work-Study Program
is designed to assist with the costs of a college education by making
part-time jobs available for students. Students have the opportunity
to work for funds needed to attend college to study—hence the name
of the program. The term Work-Study does not imply
that students literally study while on the job—and students should
not feel entitled to do so. Rather, Work-Study jobs afford wonderful
opportunities to develop skills and to gain insights into career
interests. Since Work-Study is an integral part of many Pacific
students' campus experience, and so replete with educational potential,
the Career Development Center is dedicated to helping students to
derive the maximum educational benefits from the program.
Work-Study is awarded to students
by the Office
of Financial Aid and is redeemed as wages for work performed
in qualifying jobs. Work-Study jobs can be located on campus, in
local non-profit organizations, and in governmental or community
service agencies. Students are encouraged to choose jobs that will
complement their educational and career goals. With the variety
of jobs available, the opportunities to develop skills, gain experience,
and explore interests are plentiful. It is our goal to help students
embrace these opportunities as they formulate and pursue their vision
of career success.
