The Office of Student Financial Affairs and Scholarships, in collaboration with the Career Center, provides students with the opportunity to gain on-campus work experience and develop skills while earning some money through the work-study program.
The work-study program gives students the opportunity to work in various departments on campus during the academic year and take part in projects and programs within AUC’s academic and administrative departments.
It allows students to contribute toward their educational expenses, make use of their free time, gain experience, develop transferable skills, boost their résumés and earn extra money.
The type of work a student is required to accomplish may differ from one department to another, according to the duties performed by each department.
Students participating in the program should be willing to dedicate eight to 10 working hours per week with a maximum of 120 hours during the regular semester, 60 hours during the summer session and 30 hours during the winter session.
The student is compensated at the end of each semester.
