Federal Work-Study

Through the Federal Work-Study Program, you can earn money while gaining valuable work experience. As a work-study employee, typically you will work on campus and receive a regular paycheck. Work-study cannot apply toward your bill, however.

To be eligible for work-study you must:

  • Apply for financial aid by the financial aid priority filing date, March 1st, because funds go quickly.
  • Have need as determined from the FAFSA.
  • Be able to provide required documentation for completion of federal I-9 Employment Eligibility form.

If you are interested in a non-work study job, contact the Student Employment Office in Career Services. Non-work-study jobs are available to all students, regardless of financial need.
