Working on campus

The Durham College Student Employment Program (DCWorks/Summer Employment) is intended to provide returning students who demonstrate a financial need with useful career-related experiences that will help them to achieve their personal and academic goals.

The Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities no longer funds this program. However the Financial Aid and Awards office is dedicated to continuing the program and has committed funds to it. As a result, the Summer Employment program will be fully funded by Financial Aid and Awards.
