On Campus Employment

Working for NECI while in School?

Federal Work-Study

NECI participates in the Federal Work Study Program. It is New England Culinary Institute’s policy that if a position is Federal Work-Study (FWS) eligible, then the supervisor should fill the job with a FWS eligible student. If you are interested in learning more about FWS, you will need to set up a meeting with the Coordinator of Student Services. This is a need-based program based on your FAFSA data and your eligibility is determined by the Financial Aid Office. We offer both on- and off-campus work opportunities. Students work an average of 8-10 hours a week and are paid bi-weekly. Students interested in working through our work study program can inquire with the Student Services Department once they arrive on campus.

Eligibility Requirements

You must have a complete financial aid file. This includes all required forms and documents, in addition to a completed and submitting a FAFSA; a second year student must be academically complete (70%) of first year.

After you have arrived on campus and you are enrolled as a NECI student you may inquire to determine whether or not you are Federal Work Study eligible. To qualify you:

  • Must also have completed and filed a valid I-9 and W-4 with the Human Resources/Payroll Department.
  • Must complete an application for FWS eligibility with the Coordinator of Student Services (at 7 School Street).

When eligible you and your supervisor must communicate all new hires with the Coordinator of Student Services.
