Student Employment

Career Planning & Resources, the Office of Financial Aid, and Human Resources have teamed up to create a positive student employment experience for both students and supervisors.  Scripps believes fully in the capacity of the student employment experience to provide students with valuable educational experiences, opportunities for personal growth, career development and skills training.  We believe work enhances the total educational journey as students learn responsibilities, attitudes and processes that will contribute to their success post-Scripps.

Notice to Supervisors

The Student Employment Coordinator in CP&R is available to help with questions regarding policies and procedures, posting and promoting open positions, and best practices in supervising student employees. For more information, contact Niah Grimes or call (909) 621-8180.

To request a new student employment position in your department, please complete and submit the new online Request for Student Employment form. Requests may take 3-5 business days to process. Once approved, positions will be posted in ClaremontConnect, Scripps’ central online job board for students. Set up a personal orientation to ClaremontConnect and learn how to post your positions online.

Students around campus are doing important work to support the missions and visions of the offices that employ them, and we love to hear about their successes! Check out the Dance Department Alumnae Newsletter, written by a former student employee.

Notice to Students

Student employment experiences offer students a double incentive: earn money to help meet college expenses while gaining valuable job experience.  In the competitive job market, employers value work experience among new graduates, an many on-campus departments hire students as employees.

Federal Work-Study (FWS) eligibility is determined by the Office of Financial Aid. For specific questions about your federal work-study award, contact Julia Sundstrom. Note that your FWS status does not guarantee you a job.  You are responsible for the job search process including researching, applying, and interviewing for the positions.
