Federal Work Study

Federal Work-Study (FWS) program provides students with an opportunity to work part-time to assist with educational costs. Work-study may be awarded to undergraduates and graduate students. The program consists of jobs on and off campus for community service opportunities. 

Eligible students must be enrolled at least part-time, be eligible to receive federal aid and have demonstrated financial need as determined by the FAFSA application.

Students who are eligible earn $9.00 per hour on campus and $11.00 per hour working at off-campus community service sites and are paid bi-weekly.

Once awarded, all students must attend a work-study workshop to receive their assignment and instructions on policy and procedures for the academic year. Students are also provided with an Authorization and Referral Form which authorizes them to work for the year.
