Work-study is available to students who demonstrate financial need as determined by the FAFSA. The federal government subsidizes the wages earned by the student. On average, students work 15 hours per week and receive a bi-weekly pay check to assist with personal and miscellaneous school-related expenses.
Students must file a FAFSA. Students who indicate an interest in work-study on the FAFSA and who have eligibility will have work-study included on the financial aid award. If you do not have work-study on your financial aid award, you may request it in the financial aid office or by emailing financial aid at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advertisements and informational announcements about the work-study program as well as approved work-study positions are available in early August for the upcoming academic year. This information will indicate participating departments, positions, descriptions, pay rates and other requirements for consideration.
