Student Employment

lmmaculata University offers employment opportunities to students seeking additional financial assistance, leadership opportunities, and resume building. We strongly encourage you to seek positions that provide experience for your future educational or career goals.

lmmaculata offers a paid federal work-study program. Students receive a per hour wage funded by the Federal Government. If you have Federal work-study listed as a line item on your financial aid award summary, we encourage you to review available positions and solidify your own position. Students' eligibility is determined based on financial need according to the FAFSA each year.

lmmaculata offers various community service opportunities through the Campus Ministry Office. Students who are Federal work-study eligible can also be paid for community service work.

  • Federal work-study is not deducted from your university bill. You will receive a bi-weekly paycheck for hours worked.
  • You may work the number of hours agreed upon by your department supervisor.
  • You and your supervisor are responsible for completing all required forms and submitting them to the Office of Financial Aid for review.
  • Upon approval, you will set up an account in ADP using the department code emailed to you by our Work Study Coordinator.

Immaculata offers additional programs if you are not federal work-study eligible. These programs generally have an application process in January of each year. You may apply to become:

  • an Orientation Leader, a Resident Assistant, a Commuter Assistant, or a Program Assistant (RACAPA) through the Campus Life and Residence Life Departments.

Am I eligible for Federal Work-Study?

Federal work-study will be listed on your financial aid award summary if you are eligible. Then you will need to meet the following criteria as well for the current academic year:

  • You must have completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • You must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least a 2.0.
  • You must be enrolled full time: 12 credits if you are an undergraduate student, 9 credits if you are a graduate student.
  • You must have completed all financial aid documentation. You may view any outstanding requirements by logging on to MyIU and clicking on SSIU (Self-Service IU) to view your account.
  • You may not exceed the maximum aid allowed. The federal government does not allow you to be awarded aid (scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study) greater than your cost of attendance. If your student employment award causes you to exceed the maximum aid allowed, you may reduce your loan amount to open your eligibility for student employment. If you choose this option, you will need to notify the Office of Financial Aid in writing. The Office of Financial Aid never reduces scholarships or grants to create eligibility for a student employment award.

Sophomores, juniors, and seniors will be given priority for available positions. Freshmen will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions about eligibility.

How do I find a student employment position?

Visit the Financial Aid Office for a list of positions.

Once I find a position I want, what do I do?

Once you have located a position you wish to obtain, contact the designated supervisor to set up an appointment to discuss position suitability and availability.

Is there a minimum or maximum amount of hours per week?

Hours available are determined by each department and their supervisors, for both the fall and spring semesters.

Is student employment available during the summer?

Yes, there are generally a few positions on-campus during the summer semester, provided funding is available.

Can I have my paycheck directly deposited into my bank account?

Yes. There is a page in the Work Study packet that asks for your direct deposit information. We ask that all students interested in work study fill this form out.
