Work Study

Southeast Technical College students with financial need may be eligible for on-campus employment though the Federal Work-Study (FWS) program. Financial need is defined by the Department of Education and students must file the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility. The FAFSA is available online at fafsa.gov after Oct. 1 each year. 

To check the status of your work-study eligibility, please stop by the Financial Aid office or contact us at 605-367-7867 or financialaid@southeasttech.edu 

Please do not apply for work-study jobs unless you have checked your work-study eligibility first. When students are interested in a work-study job, it is the student's responsibility to contact the supervisor of the work-study position, after they have checked their eligibility with financial aid. If hired, students must complete all necessary paperwork before beginning work. Students will need their Drivers’ License, Social Security card, & a voided check. Pay is $12.00 per hour. Background check is required.
