Cochise College currently administers a student employment program which is funded by both the federal government (Federal Work Study, or FWS) and Cochise College’s institutional funds.
Cochise College believes that a student employment program can assist students by decreasing financial barriers to their education, by providing students a safe environment in which to work, and by developing their job skills and work habits.
A Cochise College student is eligible for student employment only if the following criteria are met:
Please note: Eligibility does not guarantee employment, and student employment positions are not based on financial need.
