The Quest University Canada Work-Study Program is designed as part of our support system to assist our students with the cost of their education while simultaneously meeting the operational needs of the University.
If a student is awarded a need-based bursary award, the first component of the award will come in the form of allocation to the Work-Study Program, equalling earnings of $1320 per year. If the student has demonstrated need beyond this amount the remainder of the award will be in the form of a bursary to offset tuition.
Students with Work-Study allocations are not required to accept an on-campus position; they may choose to take an off-campus job or make up their stated need in some other manner.
Hours and Rate of Pay
On-campus jobs will be available to those granted Work-Study allocations, along with other employment opportunities.
All jobs pay $11 per hour. The maximum allocation would require working approximately 4 hours per week over the thirty-two weeks classes are in session (minus the first week of each term).
A limited number of short-term full- or part-time jobs may be available for students arriving early owing to their obligation to sports teams, their leadership positions on campus or based on operational needs, as well as in May following the end of the Spring term.
Students can use part or even all of their allocation at these times if positions are available, although it should be noted that students staying in May will be required to pay for a room if they live on campus (which is not required if not taking courses).
Some jobs will have regularly scheduled hours, while others may involve specific projects. All students will be responsible to a staff or faculty supervisor who will evaluate their performance and reliability; students who fail to show up for scheduled work periods, or fail to perform satisfactorily may lose their work position, and are not guaranteed a replacement position.
Jobs will be assigned by application. Information for first-time students allocated a spot in the Work-Study Program will be provided in the months before the start of the academic year.
The Financial Aid office is located within the Office of Admissions, main floor of the Library building, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
