Kenyon College provides part-time student employment opportunities through the Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) and Kenyon College Employment. The main objective of the student employment program is to provide job opportunities for students that enable them to concentrate on studies, yet earn money for educational expenses.

Student employees are not paid for time not worked. Students do not receive paid vacation days, sick days, personal days, holidays, or benefits. If a student is not working during the scheduled time, they must indicate this on the timesheet. Students do not get paid breaks or lunches. All time off should be discussed in advance and approved by the supervisor. Student employees are expected to contact their direct supervisor to report tardiness or absence.
Student employees generally are not permitted to work at Kenyon more than 20 hours per week during the academic year (40 hours per week during the summer months). Students found working in excess of the above guidelines will be notified. Departments may reduce student hours to comply with Kenyon's policies.
Federal Work-study award recipients who earn their maximum award amounts in the corresponding academic year will convert from Federal Work-study payment status to Kenyon employment payment status to meet federal guidelines.
Our policy on State Unemployment Insurance is that student employment status is temporary, does not contain any provisions for fringe benefits or holiday or overtime pay, and is contingent upon available funds. Student Employees are an exempt class under the Employment and Training Law and do not qualify for unemployment insurance.
