The Financial Aid Office awards students a work allotment at the start of each academic year, regardless of financial need. You may use your work allotment for student employment offered on campus, and for a select few off-campus locations contracted through the Financial Aid Office.  Students receiving need based financial aid generally have a work allotment of $2,800 and all other students can expect to earn up to $1,400 per year.  The allotment for any student can be increased by your hiring supervisor.

Note that your student work allotment is for the academic year only and does not apply to the summer break.

Allotment Increase Requests

Students may request an increase to their student work allotment once their remaining earnings eligibility is $500 or less.  To initiate an increase, students may complete the Work Allotment Increase Request Form.  The request form requires a preliminary approval by the student's direct supervisor to ensure the department has the funding to support continued work.  Once complete, students can submit the form in person or by email to the Office of Financial Aid.

All earnings from work at Pomona during the academic school year, including Fall, Winter, and Spring Break are considered part of your total annual work study allotment. 

If you have any questions regarding work allotments or the Student Employment program, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at (909) 621-8205 or financial.aid@pomona.edu.
