Student Work Programs

The Student Financial Planning Office oversees student work programs, including the CIA Earn & Learn Tuition Offset Scholarship and Federal Work Study.

The CIA looks for responsible, talented, and passionate students to fill open opportunities on campus. There is a wide range of opportunities, and many departments rely on student assistants to support the numerous tasks that ensure the successful daily operation of the college. Students, in return, gain invaluable hands-on experience while earning money or a tuition offset scholarship.

Students who are interested in working on campus must follow the instructions outlined for the program in which they wish to seek work opportunities. Instructions are available on the Student Work Programs Page of CIA Main Menu. Opportunities are not guaranteed.

To participate in Federal Work Study, students must apply to open opportunities under the program. If offered a position, a student must complete an employment process that includes completing a W-4 and an I-9 form. The I-9 form, required by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, establishes eligibility to work in the United States and requires students to present original documentation to verify their eligibility. Students at the New York campus must meet with the program manager to complete their employment process after they have accepted a position for Federal Work Study. Students at the California and Texas campuses should visit the Administration Office for assistance with their employment process.

To participate in Earn and Learn, students must apply to the scholarship on $HEF. Those who are eligible for the scholarship can apply to open opportunities under the program. If offered a position, the student will complete the paperwork process with the program manager.
