Student Employment

Each school year, MICA offers hundreds of students employment through its College Work-Study programs.

Work Opportunities and Eligibility

On campus/off campus job opportunities are available to students in many areas including the technology department, College social media, Admissions, and academic departments. Students are employed under the Federal Work-Study program or the MICA Work-Study program.

Federal Work-Study is a Federal Student Aid program with the purpose of providing part-time employment opportunities for undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need in order to assist them in their pursuit of a college education. Eligibility is determined based on your Student Aid Index (SAI) and the availability of federal funds.

Students who are not awarded Federal Work-Study may also seek campus employment through the MICA Work-Study program. Eligibility is determined based on the availability of institutional funds and demonstrated financial need.

Student employees are paid $13.25 per hour ($15.00 starting 01/01/2024) and can not work more than 20 hours per week. Average work-study awards are $2,500.
