Work Study - Student Employment

For students who need to earn extra money while attending college, a work-study program can be a great choice. It’s an opportunity to earn a paycheck, build your resume and gain valuable references. The pay is $9.50 an hour, and depending on eligibility, students may earn up to $4,500 per year.

This form of financial aid, financed through state or federal funds, allows students to work part-time on campus in a department of their choice (depending on job availability). Students work from five to 15 hours per week during the school year and up to 30 hours per week during the summer.

The following information provides details about the work programs on the Anoka Tech campus.

It gives you a chance to find something you are   interested in and also provides experience for the future.
