The Work Study Program is coordinated by the Career Center to provide AUC academic and administrative departments/offices with the opportunity to temporarily hire undergraduate and graduate students for varying needs and positions.
The program provides skilled human resources to support the departments in various missions such as day-to-day tasks, new projects, and research conduction that all contribute to AUC's long-term vision of academic excellence.
The Work Study positions differ from one department to another depending on the nature of the work in each department and the level of technical skills required to complete the assigned tasks.
Meanwhile, the Work Study Program gives students the opportunity to work on campus, physically or virtually, in an effort to gain hands-on working experience while complimenting their educational pursuits and developing their technical and soft skills.
Post opportunities on CareerWEB - AUC's online career management system. This applies to departments with returning students as well. All departments should add the total number of hours needed from all students in the required position while creating the Work Study posting.

Undergraduate students: Must be a full-time enrolled student, GPA 2.0 or above
Graduate students: Must be enrolled in at least one course, GPA 3.0 or above
Non-degree students: Must be a full-time enrolled student
NB: Students who are receiving Tomorrow’s Leaders Scholarship will not be entitled for the Work Study payment as per the scholarship rules.
Check the Work Study categories table for additional eligibility criteria depending on the position’s category.
Work Study hours are determined each semester in accordance with the student's class schedule. Students typically work 8 - 10 hours per week. There is a maximum number of Work Study hours that a student is allowed to complete per semester as follows:
Fall/Spring: Maximum of 120 hours
Summer: Maximum of 80 hours
Winter: Maximum of 40 hours
A maximum number of hours depends on the number of courses students are enrolled in:
One course: Maximum of 40 hours
Two courses: Maximum of 80 hours
Three or more courses: Maximum of 120 hours
The above are the maximum allowed hours per semester; however, departments that submit fund requests should abide by the hours approved by the Career Center.
Students will ONLY be compensated for the maximum number of hours that they are entitled to work.
The Work Study supervisor is required to submit a mandatory evaluation for every student's performance before the end of each semester filling in the number of hours completed by the student. If supervisors fail to complete the evaluation by the deadline, students will not be compensated. Evaluation and payment instructions and deadlines are communicated every semester to announce departments’ contact persons.
