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.
