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 is eligible to work as a student employee if:

  1. He or she meets the enrollment requirement.
  2. The student can show proof of eligibility to work in the United States.
  3. At time of hire the student has a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or first semester enrolled at Oakton.
  4. He or she is making satisfactory progress toward achieving their educational goals.  Satisfactory progress mirrors Oakton’s SOAP policy.

Students are eligible to work as a student employee in any given fall or spring semester if he or she is registered in a minimum of 3 credit hours for that semester.  Courses changed to audit and Alliance for Lifelong Learning classes will not be considered for eligibility for student employment.

Students are eligible to work in the summer if they were enrolled the preceding spring, during the current summer term, or for the following fall.

Students who maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA each semester and cumulatively are considered to be making satisfactory progress and remain eligible for student employment.

  • If a student employee is placed on academic probation according to SOAP, Oakton Community College's academic policy, the student must return to good standing OR remain on academic probation in order to maintain eligibility for student employment.
  • If a student progresses to suspension or dismissal they are no longer eligible for student employment.
  • Students on suspension or dismissal return are not eligible for student employment.
