AACC has many employment opportunities available if you are eligible through Federal Work Study (FWS) or the Institutional Student Aid Program (ISAP). If eligible, you can apply for positions at AACC that interest you and campus supervisors will reach out if you meet all the necessary qualifications. Earnings from these on-campus positions can help you pay for your educational and living expenses.

FWS earnings won't reduce your eligibility for financial aid during the following academic year. However, the amount you earn should still be reported on next year’s FAFSA. Although ISAP is still a great way to gain experience and build your résumé while working on campus, earnings from ISAP funds and all other types of off-campus employment can sometimes reduce your eligibility for aid the following academic year.
