Student Employee Program
Oakton Community College provides employment opportunities to students in order to enhance their educational experience, promote their involvement with the College and to enable the College to function in an effective and cost-efficient manner.
A student can apply to work on campus as a student employee if:
- He or she meets the enrollment requirement.
- The student can show proof of eligibility to work in the United States.
You are eligible to work as a student employee in any given fall or spring semester if you are registered in an Oakton credit or Alliance for Lifelong Learning course for that semester. You are eligible to work in the summer if you were enrolled the preceding spring, during the current summer term, or for the following fall.
Applying for a Student Employee Position
Career Services acts as Human Resources for student employment. Complete an application in Career Services, room 1125 on the Des Plaines Campus or in the Enrollment Center, room A100 on the Skokie Campus.
