Labor Program

As a student at Berea, you will also participate in Berea’s Labor Program and work a minimum of 10 hours a week in an assigned labor position. After the first year, you will have the opportunity to apply for a position that will support your academic, career, or personal interests. For your efforts, you will be compensated in the form of Berea Work Scholarship, which is applied to your cost of tuition. You will also receive cash compensation (approximately $4.65-$6.80 per hour) you can use to help pay for books and other expenses. You may use your work-study earnings to pay your student account chargers through a payroll deduction arrangement. We advise setting up electronic transfer to your checking or savings account once you are on campus.
