Student Work Assistance Program (SWAP)



To continue to develop the whole student through the development of character, work ethic, and responsibility.

The concept of the Student Work Assistant Program (SWAP) is to decrease the overall costs of attending Emmaus Bible College. The SWAP program has students working 3 hours per week in service to the school. Students ARE NOT required to participate in the program. A student may buy out of the program at any time for $400.00. It is important to note that we will not pro-rate the buy out for any service completed.

There are six basic areas that students will perform duties in the SWAP program. The areas include: Food Service, Custodial, Library, Front Desk, Research Assistant and the Athletic Department. Assignments for the SWAP program originate in the office of the Vice President for Student Development. Each department head will receive a list of students in their area and are responsible for making the specific job assignments. All scheduling conflicts are to be handled by your SWAP supervisor.

SWAP Performance is based on a "three strikes and you're out" philosophy:

  1. The first time you miss an assignment or you fail to do the job acceptably, you are given a write up and a $15 fine.
  2. The second time you miss an assignment or you fail to do the job acceptably you are given a second strike write up and a $15 fine.
  3. If a student fails to fulfill their responsibility a third time, they will be fined $15, and required to pay the $400 buyout fee. Please note that we will not pro-rate the buyout fee for any service already completed.

SWAP is in effect from the first day of class until the last day of class; exceptions include finals, study day, and extended school vacations (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and Spring Break).
