Work Study Program
SCAD Atlanta’s Equipment Checkout facility is always looking for new applications for our work study program. Generally, we schedule interviews at the end of one quarter and hire new employees for the beginning of the next. Sometimes, however, we might not be able to fill a particular shift with our current staff, so feel free to apply any time.
There are a few steps to beginning the application process. Feel free to let us know you’re applying, either by visiting Equipment Checkout or emailing the staff member who supervises our work study students, Matt Franklin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Before we can interview you for a position, however, you’ll need to complete a work study application form and contact Student Employment to verify your eligibility. The form and contact information can be found here:
Once you have completed the initial application and been approved for the work study program by the Office of Student Employees, please let us know so we can schedule an interview with you. The interview is a short meeting with Matt and Germaine Brown, the supervisor of all Technology Services for the Atlanta campus. We’ll be discussing the duties of our workers and your weekly availability. It’s a good idea to send Matt an email ahead of time with your weekly schedule for the quarter you’d like to work.
Once we’ve met with you, if we feel you’d be a suitable employee and we have a shift in need of a worker, we’ll complete the hiring process and you’ll be given your work schedule. Gook luck!
Here are some final notes on the work study program for Equipment Checkout:
- We believe that grades come first, work comes second. We want you to succeed as students, but it’s up to you to determine how much time you’ll need each week outside of class to maintain a healthy GPA. If you feel like your current schedule is more than you can handle, let us know and we’ll help you work it out.
- Work comes second, but not at work. We ask our staff to remember that, even though they’re student workers they are actual employees of an actual job. It’s not uncommon for workers to find the free time to study while they’re at work, but you are expected to put any personal projects aside any time a patron or supervisor needs your attention. You are also expected to remain in Equipment Checkout or wherever a supervisor tells you to be during your shift.
- Workers are expected to read and understand the Student Worker Handbook for Equipment Checkout. You’ll be given a copy (probably digital) of the Handbook upon being hired.
- SCAD operates primarily on a bi-weekly pay period, so time sheets are always due on one week with paychecks arriving on the next. Payment and pay rates are NOT handled through the Technology Services staff. Any questions or concerns should be directed to the office of Student Employment (email@example.com)

Here’s a list of the major documentation you need to be familiar with as a student worker:
The survey is something you’ll be required to take at least once each quarter (possibly more). These are only training aids and will not affect your employment status.
