The federal government, state of Texas and Schreiner University provide programs for students to work while they are enrolled in school. Part time work-study positions are available both on and off campus to eligible students.

How do you know if you are eligible?

The Office of Financial Aid must award work-study to a student. Students must then apply for various positions through the Meaningful Work Office. The award does not guarantee a position. Students must interview and obtain a job before they are paid an hourly wage. Checks are cut bi-weekly to students based on approved time sheets.

Whether you are an incoming freshman or a current student, if you were not awarded work-study and would like the opportunity to work on campus, contact the financial aid office.

Step 1: Confirm your Federal Work-Study award through the Financial Aid Office, on Schreiner One, or contact David Reast, Coordinator of Meaningful Work: | 830-792-7451.

Step 2: Complete and submit a Work-Study application form. Applications are available on the Schreiner One homepage under Campus Resources and in the Office of Career Development (CCAC-2nd Floor).

Step 3: Complete your profile and upload your resume on Handshake, accessible on Schreiner One under Campus Resources. Be sure to approve the PDF version of your resume and make it public, so it can be used to apply for jobs.

Step 4: Search for jobs and arrange interviews with work-study supervisors.

Step 5: Once you have a job offer, contact the Coordinator of Meaningful Work to schedule your mandatory orientation: | 830-792-7451.

Step 6: Attend payroll training with Carrie Rodgers, Payroll Coordinator. Training is available Mondays, Thursdays, & Fridays at 2:00pm in Guy Griggs building.



Students may not begin work until after completing new employee orientation and payroll training. Students must present valid ID (Driver’s License, Social Security Card, Passport, etc.) These must be original documents. Photocopies will not be accepted.
