Student Employment Opportunities

At Providence Christian College, student employment serves to assist in the educational program of the college by providing financial resources for the students to help pay for college and by training students to be effective and responsible Christian employees.

  • Student Employment positions are for the entire academic year. At the end of the spring semester, job information for the fall of the next school year will be posted. New students will receive information during the summer regarding available positions.
  • Students need to fill out an employment application online. Department supervisors will review applications, interview, and hire qualified candidates prior to summer recess. Some positions will be left available for incoming freshmen/transfer students.
  • Student employees can earn as much as $3,000 per school year.
  • A student employee’s wages may be directly applied to the student’s account balance. When the student’s account balance and the current academic year are paid in full, the student can request the full wages (or any percentage) be paid to him or her.


Student employment during college helps prepare students for full-time employment following graduation; therefore, we expect students to act professionally and responsibly in regards to their student employment assignments. This includes communicating well with their supervisor and fellow employees, dressing appropriately for the assigned position, and working diligently to complete tasks to the best of their ability. If students are not working at an acceptable level, or it is apparent that their primary role as students is being negatively affected due to employment, they may be removed from the student employment program. Each position will have specific job expectations that will be required.

Hiring Process

  • All students who are interested in employment must complete the online student employment application and reapply for student employment each year. Completed applications will be emailed to the supervisor of the department(s) for which you are applying. You may apply up to two different departments, but will be hired for one position only.
  • Employees generally can expect up to eight hours per week.
  • Supervisors will review all applications and interview those who are good candidates for the position. After the interview process, the supervisor chooses the most qualified candidate(s).
  • Students must adhere to the guidelines set forth in the Student Employment Handbook, which will be provided upon hire.
