Ripe for More Opportunities

​College administrators believe in the value of on-campus jobs and want more funding to add positions.​

Working for a college or university can often be considered a plum job for a student -- with generally flexible hours, minimal to no commute and a relatively easy first professional opportunity.

But according to a new analysis by NASPA: Student Affairs Professionals in Higher Education, institutions of all sorts -- two-year and four-year, public and private -- want and need more money to invest in student employment and to add more positions on campus. These jobs also compete with those outside the university that might pay better, the report shows.

NASPA researchers surveyed student affairs professionals and other employees at 244 institutions, most of them four-year public (47 percent) and private nonprofit institutions (37 percent).

The survey asked respondents to identify barriers in “advancing” student employment on campus. Inadequate funding was generally the top answer, with 77 percent of respondents at public colleges and 62 percent at privates reporting that funding was a problem. About 76 percent at two-year institutions in the survey also reported that limited funding was an issue.

About 64 percent of respondents said that in the next three to five years they’d like to increase the hourly wage of student workers. And 59 percent said they wanted to add to the number of student positions.

The survey found that the top two “environmental factors” affecting student jobs were minimum-wage changes and a competitive off-campus job market. The report didn’t provide a range of how much students typically are paid for on-campus positions. But it said many students from all types of institutions work between 11 and 15 hours a week, which can be fewer hours than is required by retail jobs off-campus, said Amelia Parnell, NASPA’s vice president for research and policy and one of the report’s coauthors.

On-campus jobs benefit students in ways their off-campus counterparts don’t, Parnell said. For example, she said, staff members recognize that a worker “is a student first,” and they can be more flexible about scheduling.

Omari Burnside, assistant vice president for strategy and marketing at NASPA and a co-author of the report, said that in some cases low-income students might need to seek off-campus jobs that pay more than those offered by a college. Institutions said they sometimes help students find jobs with better pay. And Parnell said some on-campus positions last longer than single semester or academic year, which means that students, just like if they were working off-campus, are able to earn promotions and raises. 

She said students shouldn’t ignore off-campus opportunities. But campus jobs can be uniquely beneficial, said Parnell, often by not requiring a car to go to work or by helping student employees develop a mentor-mentee relationship with a boss.

“I think we do it owe it to them to make it as fruitful as possible,” Parnell said of on-campus jobs. “With other jobs, it’s much more transactional -- you do the job, you get paid. College is much more than that -- with this particular work environment, it should be a living and learning community.”

The survey's other findings include:

  • 81 percent of institutions surveyed said the goal of off-campus employment was to prepare students for a career, 78 percent said it was to improve students’ financial security and 69 percent said the jobs were meant to retain students and help them complete college (respondents could check more than one answer).
  • All of the four-year and two-year public colleges surveyed received some form of federal work-study funding, as did 99 percent of four-year private institutions.
  • Only 1 percent of students at four-year public institutions worked more than 21 or more hours a week; 4 percent of students at two-year colleges worked 21 or more hours a week.
  • The campus student affairs office employed the most students, followed by an institution’s recreation or fitness center.
  • About 82 percent of all institutions surveyed maintained some sort of centralized job board; 55 percent directly reached out, either by email or face-to-face, when students matched the characteristics of a job; and about 49 percent of institutions used new student orientation to showcase their jobs.

Organizing Your Scholarship Search

There are a million scholarships out there, so how do you find the right one?

Organizing Your Scholarship Search  
You know there are a million scholarships out there, but where do you begin finding the right one for you? Starting your search can feel intimidating and staying on top of it all can be even more difficult. So, what’s the big secret? Organization is the key! Here is a step-by-step list you can follow to keep your scholarship search organized and focused:

1. Make an Applications List

Create a list of the scholarships you've already found and would like to apply for, the scholarships you've already applied for and are waiting to hear back from and where you’d like to search for more scholarships. Your Fastweb dashboard is a great tool to utilize for this. It allows you to navigate your scholarship matches and designate those you'd like to apply for, those you're not interested in and which scholarship applications you've completed. You can also keep your scholarships organized within Fastweb's app. The app allows you to log in to your Fastweb account and organize lists of the scholarships you already match to on the go. It doesn't get any easier than that! The point is to keep track of your progress so you don't waste time working on anything you've already done and get easily reference past scholarships you've applied for if necessary.

2. Know Your Scholarship Resources

Create a file bookmarking the websites with scholarship information and scholarships you’d like to apply for. Again, your Fastweb dashboard is made to help you organize these lists -- and links straight to the provider's website with each scholarship details page where you can apply.
Keep your usernames and passwords in a safe spot so that you can access your profiles anytime you need to, as many of the sites update scholarship opportunities frequently. Look for scholarship opportunities offline, too. Many colleges post scholarship opportunities on bulletin boards on campus, near advisors offices and places where students gather. Scholarship books are also a great resource, as long as you ensure the information is not out of date.

3. Gather Application Materials

Detail your qualifications and eligibility for scholarships. This will make your future application processes a lot easier when you are applying for more scholarships. Collect all the materials you may need for applications such as written application essays, your school transcripts and letters of recommendation from teachers and guidance counselors and, if relevant, your FAFSA information. Keep your materials together so that you can refer to them whenever necessary during your application process, whether it’s in a computer file or an actual file folder. Also, save all of your scholarship essays as you create them. While it's not smart to reuse the exact essay, it's much easier to edit an essay you've already written than start from scratch, especially if the essay questions are similar in nature and many of them will be.

4. Make a Deadline Calendar

Deadlines are crucial in the application process. Create a calendar that you can stick to detailing all of your scholarship application deadlines. Try to organize a schedule for yourself so that you can set dates for finishing you essay, submitting your paperwork, sending in your application, etc. You Fastweb scholarship calendar on Fastweb lists all of your upcoming scholarship match deadlines to help get you started. Making a calendar with reminders for the last date of the deadline may be somewhat helpful but it will be far more beneficial to spread out the tasks and plan ahead. That way, by the time the deadline rolls around you've already submitted your application and don't have anything to worry about.

5. Follow Through

Now that you've done all the work for when you’re going to apply, you need to actually apply. Make sure that you are mindful of all the criteria and apply for as many scholarships as you possibly can, because applying for scholarships is essentially a numbers game. Signing up for Fastweb is a great start to the race - but following through is like crossing the finish line. Remember, you can always indicated which scholarships you've applied for (or won) on your Fastweb dashboard. Remember, the more you apply for, the more likely your chances are of winning so apply early and apply often! Follow these steps all the way to scholarship search success. Good luck with your scholarship search!

Tax Breaks for College Students and Parents

If you're an independent college student who pays taxes, or if your parents are helping you pay for college, you may qualify for up to $2,500 in tax breaks annually. There are two major tax credits for college students: the American Opportunity Tax Credit and the Lifetime Learning Tax Credit

You can only claim one of these tax credits in a given year, but almost every independent or homeless student will qualify for either tax break, and it’s likely that most families will qualify for at least one tax break as well. Here’s a breakdown of how the American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning credits work.

American Opportunity Tax Credit

The American Opportunity credit is worth up to $2,500 annually in tax breaks. If claiming the American Opportunity credit brings the amount of tax you owe to $0, you can get 40% of the value of the credit refunded directly to you (meaning up to $1000 in your pocket!). You can only claim the American Opportunity credit for your first 4 years of college.

Here’s how you qualify:

  • Be enrolled at least half-time and pursuing a degree at an eligible college
  • If you’re an independent student, your annual income must be $90,000 or less to be eligible
  • If your parents or relatives pay for your college, their joint annual income must be $180,000 or less to be eligible

Lifetime Learning Tax Credit

The Lifetime Learning credit is worth up to $2,000 annually in tax breaks. You can claim the Lifetime Learning credit for as long as you are pursuing a degree at an eligible college.

Here’s how you qualify:

  • Be enrolled in at least one class and pursuing a degree at an eligible college
  • If you’re an independent student, your annual income must be $65,000 or less to be eligible
  • If your parents or relatives pay for your college, their joint annual income must be $130,000 or less to be eligible

Here's What Actually Makes Your High School Resume Impressive to Colleges


The good news: You’ve worked hard in school, you’ve gotten good grades, and you’re king or queen of extracurricular activities.

The bad news: There are a lot of you out there.

That means colleges are becoming choosier when it comes to building a class, and the increased standard of college admission among top schools sends students searching for innovative ways to stand out with their activities list.

So here’s the best news: With a little creativity, your resume can stand out from the crowd.

Your goal with your own resume, whether it’s published on LinkedIn or elsewhere, should be to create a representation of yourself that makes colleges eager to meet you. Beyond really popular extracurriculars like FBLA and NHS, or even soccer and band, challenge yourself to think outside the box to add activities to your resume before applying to colleges. Here are some ideas:

Publish Your Work

Writing a knockout term paper is one thing, but being published shows your professionalism and mastery of a subject. While you are building an interactive resume, earning a byline will always take your resume to the next level.

There are several ways to get this accomplished. Beyond your school newspaper (which is a good place to start), you can reach out to local publications and offer to write articles from a student perspective. You can also do some Googling and find niche online publications that cater to your interests (sports, TV, competitive eating – anything) and pitch articles to them.

If writing for an established publication seems a bridge too far, you can always self-publish. For example, take your summer research program findings to the next level by writing about the experience as a Medium post or on a personal blog. (If you don’t have one, consider starting one!)
