The Federal Work-Study Program is a need-based employment assistance program. It provides employment opportunities for students that qualify. These opportunities are on campus, as well as in local community service organizations. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for this need-based award. If the student qualifies for Federal Work-Study assistance, the student will receive an award letter from the Financial Aid Office indicating the maximum amount of wages the student is able to earn. Students are paid bi-weekly by check for hours worked. Students generally use earned wages to help defray personal educational expenses. All student employment is subject to job availability.
