Work-Study

Work-Study programs help students find a part-time job in order to earn additional funds to help pay for their education.

Federal Work Study (FWS)

To be considered for FWS, a student must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The amount of FWS a student is awarded represents eligibility for working on campus. Students who are offered FWS are not committed to a job or guaranteed a job on campus, but they receive priority to find and accept a job on campus during the first three weeks of the fall semester. Students are paid by direct deposit to the student's checking or savings account. Most students are paid minimum wage.

University Work Study

University Work-Study is available to any student who wants to work on campus and does not require that you file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Since priority is given to those who qualify on a need basis for FWS, students who do not file the FAFSA or do not have FWS eligibility will be allowed to pursue campus employment after the first three weeks of the fall semester. Students are paid by direct deposit to the student's checking or savings account. Most students are paid minimum wage.
