Work Programs

In an increasingly competitive job market, employers want applicants with both work and academic experience.

Occidental Work Award

This program is funded by Occidental College and is limited to students who demonstrate financial need (including international students). If you are awarded this work award, it is your responsibility to seek on-campus employment. On-campus jobs are not guaranteed, therefore you should start seeking employment the summer before school starts.

Federal Work Study

This program is partially funded by the federal government and is limited to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who demonstrate financial need. If you are awarded this work award, it is your responsibility to seek on-campus employment. On-campus jobs are not guaranteed, therefore you should start seeking employment the summer before school starts.
