Student Employment & Work Study

Student Employment & Work Study is available to currently enrolled students at Porterville College. Our purpose is to coordinate the hiring of on-campus job placement and various off-campus placements funded by Porterville College by the Federal Work Study Program, Campus Work Study Program, and CalWORK’s Work Study Program.

It is our goal to provide students with vital employment experience, supplemental income, and accommodating schedule while working toward a degree or certificate.


Note regarding the I-9 form: you must have the latest version of Adobe downloaded to use the fillable form. If you're not able to use that version of the form, you can download a paper version of the form (as well as other versions such as a Spanish language format), at the I-9 information page. You can then print the paper version, complete it, take a picture of it with your phone or a scanner, and email it to the appropriate office.

Note regarding the Direct Deposit and Payroll process: Student payroll is processed on the 1st of every month in the form of a check. To receive Direct Deposit, submit the Direct Deposit form to the Financial Aid Office.
