Student Employment

Federal Work-Study Program

  • The Federal Undergraduate Work-Study Program provides hourly-wage, part-time jobs for students with financial need. Due to limited Federal funds, student employment is based on a first come, first serve basis. Interested students must complete the FAFSA and indicate that they are interested in Federal Work Study and have eligibility. As Federal Work Study is awarded, deadlines will be placed on completing the employment paperwork prior to the beginning of employment.

Eligibility Requirements Go to financial aid web page Financial Aid Eligibility Requirements for general and program-related requirements.
Aid Awarded Awarded to students with financial need, is based on fund availability. Students must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) as part of the application process for FWS assistance.
Annual Award Amount for an Academic Year Maximum award amount : $6,240
Pay Schedule Work study students receive a pay check bi-weekly.
