Eligibility

  • The minimum GPA required to apply for a position is 2.50.
  • Applicants must be available for an interview during the spring application period
  • A student may not be employed in the same or similar position more than once.
  • There is a limit of two StAP appointments per student, although it is rare for a student to receive more than one StAP appointment.
  • The program is open to all students regardless of financial need.

Financial Aid and Employment

Although StAP awards are not based on financial need, the award amount will be incorporated into the aid packages of those participants who receive need-based financial aid at Ohio Wesleyan.  A federal work-study award may be adjusted or a loan may be reduced or replaced. Treatment varies depending on the individual financial aid packages. Applicants should review their circumstances with a financial aid officer.

Financial Compensation

  • Positions are for the full academic year. StAP positions are for six hours per week and are paid $750/semester or $1500/Year.  Payment is made on a bi-weekly basis.

Application

Interested students should read through the descriptions and choose up to three of the positions. After eligible applicants have been interviewed by their potential supervisors, appointments will be made based on interests, qualifications, and fund availability. Successful applicants will be notified by the last week of the semester.

In fairness to all, late applications will not be accepted under any circumstances

Note - Students will be required to participate in mandatory StAP student training sessions on the Saturday after the first week of classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I apply for more than one position?
Yes, you can apply for up to three positions, if you so desire.

Do I fill out a separate application for each position that I am applying for?
No. There is space to list the different positions in the order of your preference. You will, however, need to submit a separate statement for each position. This is all done online.

What is the GPA requirement?
The minimum GPA is 2.50 to apply to StAP.  

When and how will I be notified if I have received a StAP appointment?
Successful applicants will receive an e-mail no later than the last week of the spring semester. 

Why does this process take so long?
The combination of many great opportunities, the number of students who are interested in positions, students being able to apply for multiple positions, and limited funding, offers many challenges and takes time to sort out. We think you will find it is worth the wait!
