Merrimack College offers a wide variety of employment opportunities on and off campus through federal work-study and college employment programs.

Federal Work-Study

More commonly known as “work-study,” many people use this term as a catch-phrase for all student-employment programs. The Federal Work-Study Program is a government-funded program available to students who have completed the FAFSA application and have a financial need. Many departments on campus and some off-campus nonprofit organizations have access to these funds.

This program is for students who did not file the FAFSA and/or are not eligible for the Federal Work-Study Program. Students are paid through college funds. Most students work six to 10 hours per week, depending on their class schedule, at a minimum rate of $14.25 per hour. It is recommended that students do not exceed 20 hours per week.
