Student Employment FAQ

What types of work-study jobs are available?

Students are awarded two different types of work-study:

  • Federal Work-Study – On-campus jobs and for off-campus jobs that require FWS eligibility
  • Stonehill Work – On-campus jobs only

How do I know if I received a work-study award?

If you are eligible for work-study it would appear in the Financial Aid section of myHill. You must accept your work-study award to use it.

Are jobs available for students without work-study awards?

Students must have a work-study award to apply for a student job on campus. Students not awarded work-study may request an award in Student Financial Assistance after the fourth week of school.

Does a work- study award assure me of a job?

There is no job placement or guarantee of a job but rather the award is the limit to the amount you may earn during the academic year. Students are responsible for securing their own employment.

Can a work-study award be used to pay my bill?

No, work-study awards do not appear on the student account.  The only way to receive these funds is by working and getting paid for this work.  Students can manage these funds the way they see fit.

What happens if I don't use my work-study award?

Nothing happens to a student's financial aid if the work-study funds are not utilized.  All other awards remain unchanged.

How do I look for a job and start to apply?

Students search for their own jobs by going to the Student Employment database at https://jobs.stonehill.edu. The job search and hiring process generally takes several weeks.

Can I have more than one job on campus?

Yes, students can have up to three different jobs in an academic year.

How many hours can I work in a week?

Students are recommended to work 15 hours per week and up to 20 during the academic year. 

What forms do I need to complete in order to work on campus?

All forms can be obtained by going to myHill/myServices. Once all forms have been completed, please return them in person to the Payroll Office, Merkert-Tracy #163.
