Federal Work-Study Program
Federal work-study represents the wages that a student can expect to earn working at a job on-campus. Students can use the income they earn to offset some of their college expenses thereby reducing their reliance on student loans to meet these costs. Please note that while your job is being funded through a financial aid program, it is a job and should be treated as any other source of employment. Students are expected to provide an hour's work for an hour's pay.
Only students that have an established award that includes federal work-study are eligible. Students are not guaranteed a work-study position by virtue of being offered work-study in their financial aid package. Eligible students must apply for on-campus jobs by submitting a resume and cover letter directly to the hiring department. A student can earn up to the dollar amount offered to him/her per semester as listed in the financial aid award letter. Once that dollar amount has been earned for a given semester, the student must cease working for that term.
