Welcome to Student Employment!

The Student Employment Office (SEO), a part of the Financial Aid Office, assists students in finding employment on campus in the Vassar Community.

Our Mission

To support the educational goals of Vassar College and its students by offering part-time on-campus and off-campus employment opportunities for students demonstrating financial need.  By providing assistance in the operation of the Vassar campus and community with administrative and academic support and resources, students are able to achieve both professional and personal development.

There are a wide variety of student jobs, and many departments rely upon student workers to lend support to the numerous tasks to ensure the successful daily operation of Vassar College.  The SEO helps employ approximately 1600 students during the academic year, and offers a limited number of winter, spring and summer break positions.

The SEO collaborates with all departments, employers, community partners, and students, in order to provide a safe and enjoyable work experience for all.  The SEO Task Force, which is made up of faculty and administrators, work together to further develop various policies and position requests.

The SEO works directly with Payroll and Human Resources in order to comply with all state and government regulations.  The SEO is located in the Financial Aid Office in the Main Building.

Student Guidelines and Policies

All student employment related resources are at your fingertips!  The Student Employment Handbook includes all information regarding both Federal regulations and Vassar policies and procedures.  Additional information and resources are available on the On-Campus Employer home page.
