Reading Area Community College offers a work-study program that provides jobs for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay educational expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to your course of study.
To be eligible for the work-study program, you must complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid for the upcoming year prior to May 1, be enrolled at least half-time (six credits), and maintain a semester and cumulative grade point average of at least a 2.0.
Work-study opportunities are available in the Yocum Library, campus offices, computer labs, science labs and other areas of the College. The College pays wages by a paycheck on a semi-monthly basis. The current pay rate is $8.00 an hour.
Once you find a position that interests you, email your resume and student ID number to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are eligible for work-study, then you will need to pick up a work-study eligibility card in the Financial Aid Office, Berks Hall, Room 107.
Please note that participation in work-study could reduce future loan requests.
