Federal Work-Study Program

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is part of the financial aid package that provides funds for part-time employment to help students finance the cost of their education. Students must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as part of the application process for FWS assistance.

All students who meet financial aid eligibility requirements can apply for institutional work-study positions. Federal Work-Study positions are limited to students who are eligible to receive federal funds and have demonstrated financial need on the FAFSA. Federal Work-Study earnings are factored into a student's financial aid budget. Students approaching their financial aid budget maximum must confirm eligibility for Federal Work-Study with the Office of Financial Aid.

All work-study positions pay $13/hour. Students are limited to working a maximum of twenty hours per week.
