For details about student employment, please see the Foothill-DeAnza Student Employment Policies &
Student employment opportunities at Foothill College are part-time positions. Wages begin at $8 per hour and can reach $14.75 per hour. Students are limited to working a maximum of 19 hours per week. This limit applies whether school is in session or not. To be eligible for student employment, a student must have:
The Federal Work-Study Program provides job opportunities on campus (on a first-come, first-served basis)
for students who have applied for federal financial aid at Foothill and been offered a
FWS award based on financial need. Several "community service" work opportunities (some off campus)
are also offered through this program. A student's FWS job earnings for the academic year
cannot exceed the dollar amount of their FWS award.
Once offered an award, the student has a limited time to come to the Financial Aid Office to accept that award before the offer expires. The student must then meet with the Financial Aid Office Student Employment Representative to arrange for a FWS job interview from the list of available jobs.
In addition to the requirements for all student employees, FWS employees must maintain financial aid eligibility. They must also be enrolled in and successfully complete at least 6 units each quarter they work. Student workers who fail to earn at least 6.0 financial-aid-eligible units any quarter they work or who fail to maintain a 2.0 Quarterly GPA will be ineligible to work the following quarter. Those who continue working after dropping below their required units (or after ceasing to actively participate in courses required to maintain the required units) will lose employment privileges for an additional quarter.
Unlike FWS jobs, there is no central listing of District-funded student jobs. To
find these job opportunities, students must go to the various departments to see whether
anyone is interested in hiring them. Once they are offered a job, they must meet with
the Student Employment Representative at the Financial Aid Office to complete the hiring process.
Enrollment requirements: Students in District-funded positions must be enrolled in and successfully completing at least 12 units each quarter they work (some exceptions exist for Summer). Students whose District-funded position is funded all or in part by CalWorks are only required to be enrolled in and completing 6 units each quarter they work. Student workers who fail to earn at least 12.0 units (6.0 units for CalWorks-funded employees) any quarter they work or who fail to maintain a 2.0 Quarterly GPA will be ineligible to work the following quarter. Students who continue working after dropping below their required units (or after ceasing to actively participate in courses required to maintain the required units) will lose employment privileges for an additional quarter.
