Working on Campus
What should I do if I want to work while I am going to Shoreline Community College?
- Cafeteria. Jobs: serving food, taking money, restocking food items, washing dishes,
and cleaning the cafeteria area.
- Safety and Security Office. Jobs: helping with security at events, helping patrol
parking lots, writing tickets, and general office duties.
- Bookstore. Jobs: restocking bookstore, helping students locate materials, cashier
duties, and general office work.
- Plant Operations- 900 Building. Jobs: weeding, picking up garbage, cleaning up campus
and other outside work.
- Do you have any hourly positions available? Many offices on campus will have "work
study" jobs available. These positions are only for resident students who are receiving
financial assistance from the state of Washington.
- If they have a job available ask for an application. Also you should ask about what
hours are available.
- If they do not have any jobs available, ask if they will have any available in the
future. See if they have a sort of waiting lists for jobs.
- Once you have been offered a job on campus begin to fill out the paperwork. You will
also need to come to International Education to get a letter for the social security
office. Our office will also need to sign your job paperwork.
- During the school year, you are only allowed to work 20 hours or less. When classes
are not in session, or during your authorized vacation quarter, you can work full
time (Please note that most hourly positions on campus tend to be around 16 hours
a week, so it may be hard to find a full-time job).
- Continue to register and attend on a full-time basis (at least 12 credits each quarter)
while you are working, unless you are eligible for a vacation.
- Begin to work and enjoy.
