Student Employment Opportunities and Basic Requirements
(to be read by all student employees)

For details about student employment, please see the Foothill-DeAnza Student Employment Policies & Procedures Manual

Student employment opportunities at Foothill College are part-time positions. Wages begin at $8 per hour and can reach $14.75 per hour. Students are limited to working a maximum of 19 hours per week. This limit applies whether school is in session or not. To be eligible for student employment, a student must have:

  • fewer than 150 attempted units at Foothill and De Anza Colleges combined;
  • a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0; and
  • a quarterly GPA of at least 2.0 in their most recent quarter*
    * Once a student drops below a 2.0 Quarterly GPA, they will not be eligible to work until they receive at least a 2.0 Quarterly GPA in a quarter in which they complete at least 6 units.
All student employee positions end on or before June 30th of the academic year in which they begin. For a job to continue beyond June 30th, a new job assignment card must be completed in advance.

Foothill offers two main types of student employment:
  1. Federal Work Study (FWS) Employment
  2. District-Funded Employment

Federal Work Study (FWS)

The Federal Work-Study Program provides job opportunities on campus (on a first-come, first-served basis) for students who have applied for federal financial aid at Foothill and been offered a FWS award based on financial need. Several "community service" work opportunities (some off campus) are also offered through this program. A student's FWS job earnings for the academic year cannot exceed the dollar amount of their FWS award.

Once offered an award, the student has a limited time to come to the Financial Aid Office to accept that award before the offer expires. The student must then meet with the Financial Aid Office Student Employment Representative to arrange for a FWS job interview from the list of available jobs.

In addition to the requirements for all student employees, FWS employees must maintain financial aid eligibility. They must also be enrolled in and successfully complete at least 6 units each quarter they work. Student workers who fail to earn at least 6.0 financial-aid-eligible units any quarter they work or who fail to maintain a 2.0 Quarterly GPA will be ineligible to work the following quarter. Those who continue working after dropping below their required units could lose employment privileges for an additional quarter.

District-Funded Employment

Unlike FWS jobs, there is no central listing of District-funded student jobs. To find these job opportunities, students must go to the various departments to see whether anyone is interested in hiring them. Once they are offered a job, they must meet with the Student Employment Representative at the Financial Aid Office to complete the hiring process.

Enrollment requirements: Students in District-funded positions must be enrolled in and successfully completing at least 12 units each quarter they work (some exceptions exist for Summer). Students whose District-funded position is funded all or in part by CalWorks are only required to be enrolled in and completing 6 units each quarter they work. Student workers who fail to earn at least 12.0 units (6.0 units for CalWorks-funded employees) any quarter they work or who fail to maintain a 2.0 Quarterly GPA will be ineligible to work the following quarter. Students who continue working after dropping below their required units could lose employment privileges for an additional quarter.

Student Employment Packet and Job Assignment Cards
  • All student employees must receive a job assignment card for each job assignment (blue cards for District-funded positions; pink cards for Federal Work Study positions) from the Financial Aid Office's Student Employment Representative. Student employees cannot begin working until their completed job assignment card is received by the Financial Aid Office.
  • All new student employees (or students who have not worked as a Foothill student employee during the past 3 years) must complete and turn in a Student Employment Packet and meet with the Financial Aid Office's Student Employment Assistant to receive a job assignment card (see Drop-In Hours listed to the right).
International students who have been offered a job must take two additional steps before meeting with the Financial Aid Office Student Employment Representative:
  • Have Arthur Levine in the International Student Office sign page 2 of the Student Employment Packet, and
  • Ask the Admissions & Records Office to enter their Social Security number in the Foothill computer system
Foothill College Student Employment Packet (fillable PDF). Fill out the packet online, print it, fill out any additional items that were not fillable online, and then sign each page. Do not print first and then fill out by hand.

All student employees are required to read Information On District Policies And Procedures before they begin working.

Please contact the Financial Aid Office at (650) 949-7245 or fhfinancialaidoffice@foothill.edu if you have any questions.
