- Did you know that GRCC Students who are employed by GRCC as Student Employees are not required to pay FICA taxes? This means that a Student Employee that earns $11/hour at GRCC is like earning approximately $11.84 elsewhere ($12.38 for Lifeguards)!
What is the difference between Non Work-Study, Work-Study and Community Service Work-Study positions?
Non Work-Study positions are available to current students enrolled in at least six credits in both the fall and winter semesters, and three credits for summer semester. These positions do not require a Work-Study Award.
Work-Study and Community Service Work-Study positions also require students to be enrolled in at least six credits in both the fall and winter semesters, and three credits for summer semester. Additionally, these positions require a type of federal aid available in the fall & winter semesters where student wages are paid using federal funds. This program reduces costs for GRCC while increasing employment opportunities for students on-campus. Community Work-Study positions are located off-site at one of GRCC's select community organizations.
