Federal Work Study Program

The Federal Work-Study program provides on-campus jobs for undergraduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay for educational expenses.

Eligibility for Work-Study

Students who qualify for Federal Work-Study have the opportunity to work on campus through the Work-Study program. Job opportunities are awarded on the basis of need. A student must complete the FAFSA to determine eligibility. Students who qualify for work-study will receive a work-study application with their initial financial aid award letter.

Work-Study is not treated the same as other forms of financial aid which are available for disbursement near the beginning of a semester. Work-Study awards are considered earning potential. Students must work their hours before receiving work-study wages. Students are paid monthly by check, and may use their earnings for personal expenses or to make payments on their school bill.

International students are encouraged to apply for Work-Study positions even though they do not meet the Federal Work-Study eligibility requirements.
