Student Employment Program

 

The Student Employment Program provides the opportunity for students to earn money while gaining work experience. It can provide some regular monthly income to help offset educational expenses and reduce loan debt. Students gain valuable job experience and evaluate their career goals. Work study is not a grant; you must work to earn it.


If you have not yet been offered Federal or State Work Study and would like to be placed on the Work Study Waitlist, click above. Work Study is offered to eligible students on a first-come, first-served basis. A FAFSA or WASFA on file is required.

Academic Credit for Prior Learning

 

Academic Credit for Prior Learning (ACPL) helps you gain college credit through evaluation of life experiences. Because each student has their own life experiences, all assessments for Academic Credit for Prior Learning are evaluated individually to ensure a student's specialties aren’t compared to other students' experiences. If you have any questions, contact the Career Education Program Coordinator, or learn more on the ACPL Page!
