What is Work-Study?
The Federal Work Study (FWS) Program provides job opportunities for eligible students who must earn part of their educational expenses. The salary is generally the current federal minimum wage and students are paid by the hour. The number of hours a student may work is based upon financial need, the number of hours possible for the student to work, and the availability of funds at the institution. A limited number of jobs are available on campus. Students are responsible for finding qualifying work study employment. For more information, contact the Financial Aid Office.
Terms and Conditions of Employment Under Federal Work Study:
Students wishing to participate in the Federal Work Study Program must be awarded financial aid and have FWS eligibility as a part of their award package. To apply for financial aid, students must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and indicate employment as their first choice for self-help aid.
Separate applications for financial aid are required for each academic year that a student wishes to be considered for employment under FWS.
Once a student has earned his/her award maximum, the student will be terminated from the work study program. Additionally, a student will be terminated from the FWS Program if the student drops below the minimum requirements of six (6) credits or at the end of each academic term. Upon termination students should contact the Financial Aid Office to determine if they have any remaining work study eligibility. The Financial Aid Office will conduct an evaluation of eligibility.
If eligible the student may request for additional work study funding through the Financial Aid Office.
If ineligible for further FWS the department which employs the student may choose to hire the student at 100% departmental funding or the student must stop working and the department will terminate him/her from the Human Resources System.
Federal Work Study awards are not credited to a student’s account. A pay check is issued every two weeks to the student for the time worked.
