Student Employment

The Center for Academic and Career Advising offers on-campus employment through the Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) and Wells Student Employment (WSE).

The student employment program offers employment opportunities for qualified students on campus at Wells College or in community-service positions within the surrounding community, including with Peachtown Elementary School, Emily Howland Elementary, Aurora Preschool, or the Aurora Free Library. Please note that eligibility for work study does not guarantee students a job, and they must still apply and be accepted for an available position.
