Student Employment Program
Ozark Christian College is pleased to offer you opportunities to work on campus. Many jobs that do not require a full-time employee are available. It is helpful to us to have students fill these jobs. Our students are usually dedicated and hard workers.
OCC isn’t the only one that gains from this arrangement. Advantages to our students include the convenience of working on campus, which saves time and expense in travel, and our willingness to work around your class schedules. Christian co-workers create a spiritual work atmosphere. You will receive a salary of $7.25 per hour*; however, the college is not required to withhold FICA while classes are in session for students taking a course load of six hours or more. Off-campus employment is required to withhold FICA; therefore you would need to earn about $7.85 per hour to equal the same amount on your paycheck in comparison to employment at OCC.
This program is designed to help you pay for your education. When you collect your paycheck in the Business Office, you may make a payment on your account at that time. (The Business Office will cash student paychecks if 50% or more of the paycheck is applied to your account.) This arrangement is an advantage to both you and the college because your account gets paid as quickly as possible and important work for the college is accomplished.
Students applying for a job must first fill out a Student Employment Application (available from the Business Office) and then either mail or personally deliver a copy to each department that you are interested in working for. You may follow up with a telephone call or letter showing your interest. Following is a list of departments and department heads on campus.
