Student workers at Trevecca next year are getting a big raise and the possibility of an off-campus job.
Trevecca administrators approved a 17.25 percent pay increase for all iWork students next year.
iWork, which was launched last fall, was designed to be a way for students to earn money and to fund their tuition.
Around 45 students participated this year and earned more than $115,000. Of that amount earned, students opted to pay $104,000 to their student accounts instead of taking out more loans.
Next year, in addition to a wage increase, students will also have the chance to work for off-campus employers.
“We are hoping students will take the initiative to make more money. Another change next year will be with our new off campus partners,” said Ryan Jolley, director of the office of student employment.
