Student Employment Office (SEO) Information

The Student Employment Office (SEO) is a member of the Division of Enrollment and the Financial Aid Office.  The SEO shares a suite with the Office of Career Services, and is located in Suite 210 of the University Center. The Student Employment Office offers several programs to assist students with part-time and summer employment.  The Director of Student Employment counsels incoming freshmen during orientation week as to the office's services.  All students receive a letter during the summer informing them of any changes in the policies and procedures of the SEO. One of the primary functions of the SEO is to administer the Federal Work-Study Program.  The SEO also offers many other programs, which are described below.

America Reads & America Counts Programs—these programs, another part of the FWS program, provide opportunities to tutor families and children in the Greenville area.  This program is only available to FWS students.

JLD Disclaimer

The SEO acts only as a posting service, and makes no particular recommendations regarding employers.  We make no representations or guarantees about JLD positions listed in this office.  The SEO is not responsible for safety, wages, working conditions, or other aspects of off-campus employment.  Due to the volume of jobs received by this office, we are unable to research the integrity of each organization or person that lists a job with us.  Therefore, you are urged to undertake the responsibility yourself.


FWS Eligibility/Award—the amount of money you can earn in the FWS program.  This amount is not paid to you as grants and scholarships are, and it is not applied to your tuition.  Instead, this "award" represents the amount the federal government will contribute to your wages.

Financial Need—the difference between the total cost of your education and the amount of money you and your family are expected to contribute to those costs as a result of data on the FAFSA.

FAFSA—this form is used to apply for all federal aid, and must be completed yearly for a student to be considered for the FWS program.
