Students have employment opportunities consistent with their chosen field of study. Employers and supervisors are encouraged to provide work hours that fit within the students' class schedule. Hourly pay rates vary and currently start at the minimum wage (currently $10.50 per hour); however, some positions may start at a higher rate of pay.  California minimum wage will increase to $11.00 per hour on January 1, 2018.  Click here for info.
