Millsaps Campus

For Students

Millsaps College offers on-campus work opportunities for students. After redesigning the student employment process in summer 2016, students as well as faculty and staff are required to register on College Central in order to apply for a job or to place a job posting. For further information, please see resources provided below.

Student Definitions

+ I applied to a job on campus. When should I hear from the supervisor?

It depends. Generally speaking, after the job’s expiration date, please follow up with the person or department that posted the job to see if they have chosen students they wish to hire. Occasionally, a job is processed before the expiration date due to the urgent need for student workers. If you are curious about the current job status, please kindly contact the hiring supervisor.

+ I qualify for federal aid. Does this mean that I automatically get an on-campus job?

No. All jobs on campus are available to students regardless of federal aid status. Therefore, you should put as much effort in your on-campus application as for a regular job application.

For Federal Work-Study eligible candidates, there are paid community service jobs with nearby organizations. These jobs will be posted on College Central, too. Look for job titles that begin with FWSCS. They typically pay more than on-campus employment.

You can also visit Linda Nix (nixls@millsaps.edu) in the Office of Financial Aid in Sanders Hall if you have questions.

+ I'm having difficulties with the student application process.

If you experience any sort of technical or content-related issues, please contact careercenter@millsaps.edu or contact us at the Career Center.
