Almost one third of students at ACPHS participate in student employment at Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in some capacity, such as a student office assistant, a peer tutor, a Resident Assistant, or participating with faculty in grant research. The employment opportunities on campus are broken down into distinct categories:
Federal Work Study (FWS) positions
FWS positions make up the majority of the employment opportunities on campus and encompass all of the off-campus community service positions. To be considered for FWS, a student must have filed a valid FAFSA for the current academic year and show financial need. Students who have been awarded a FWS grant are notified on their financial aid package. Students who have not been awarded a FWS grant but are interested in finding out if they may be eligible, can contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information.
Regular Student Employment positions
Regular student employment positions are hired by a department on campus. These positions do not have a financial need component and therefore any student may qualify for hire. For consideration, you will need to apply for a position that you are interested in with the hiring entity.
Grant Research positions
Grant research positions are hired by a faculty member on campus. The employees are selected by the hiring faculty member. These positions do not have a financial need component and therefore any student may qualify for hire.
Resident Assistant (RA)
A Resident Assistant is a trained paraprofessional who supervises those living in the residence halls. Resident Assistants provide programs in the residence halls, crisis intervention and are a great resource for the residents in the buildings. The RA’s are supervised by a Resident Director and by the Coordinator of Residence Life. All information about requirements or eligibility can be found at by attending an information session at the beginning of each Spring semester. If interested in an RA position, please contact the Office of Residence Life.
