On-Campus Employment

About On-Campus Employment?

  • Employment on-campus is at one of several GRCC locations or with a select community organization.
  • Available to current students enrolled in at least six credits in both the fall and winter semesters, and three credits for summer semester.
  • Starting in the Winter Semester 2019, pay rates will be increasing to $10.00/hr (Lifeguards $10.50)!
  • Did you know that GRCC Students who are employed by the college as student workers are not required to pay FICA taxes? This equates to more than $0.70 extra per hour in take home pay than an off-campus position! So, making $10.00 at GRCC is like making $10.70 elsewhere!
  • Some positions may require a Work-Study Award. To learn more, please go to "Work-Study vs Non Work-Study" on our menu links.
