The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) provides funding for jobs for undergraduate students with financial need in order to assist them to earn money to help pay for educational expenses.
- Work-study jobs on campus are not guaranteed
- If you have received work-study in your aid package, you will have to apply for the job and be hired in order to receive your work-study wage.
- Wages are based on the type of work you do and the skills required.
- There are FWS jobs on campus and off-campus.
- You cannot earn more than the amount awarded to you in your financial aid package.
- Work-study funds are paid out to you in the form of paychecks for work you have performed.
Apply for a Job
It is important to secure a job if you wish to get work-study funds. Please see the Career Services/Job Placement office at the beginning of each term to find out about the availability of Federal Work-Study jobs and other jobs on campus. You will need to fill out a job application, get an interview, and be hired. (Note: other students may also interview for the available position.)
