Seark College


Southeast Arkansas College participates in the Federal Work-Study program. Ordinarily, the federal government provides 75% of the funds and the college or university provides matching funds of 25% for the program; however, Southeast Arkansas College is designated as a Title III school and is exempt from the 25% matching requirement. Therefore, 100% of the Work-Study wages are paid with federal funds.

Federal Work-Study is a campus-based program that provides part-time, on-campus employment or off-campus employment in community service activities. Student workers may work a maximum of 20 hours per week. An institution of higher learning must pay students employed under the Federal Work-Study program at least the federal minimum wage. Effective January 1, 2019, the federal minimum wage is $9.25.

Federal Work-Study is need-based and eligibility is determined using information from the Institutional Student Information Record. Students applying for Work-Study must be maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress and must be enrolled a minimum of six semester credit hours.

Applications for Federal Work-Study employment are available in the FA office.  The completed application should be presented to the Financial Aid Office for eligibility verification. The application will then be forwarded to the Federal Work-Study program administrator for consideration of employment.  If hired, the student must complete an application on the SEARK Human Resources website and submit new hire paperwork to the HR office.
