Federal Work-Study Program
The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) provides employment for Title IV eligible students who demonstrate financial need.
FWS gives students the opportunity to work in different environments. Federal Work-Study (FWS) provides part-time employment opportunities with flexible hours revolving around students’ class schedules. Students are limited to working 20 hours per week, allowing students to focus on their studies.
Federal Work-Study Process
Students interested in the work-study program must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the applicable academic year. Students who indicate on the FAFSA form that they are interested in the Work-Study program and who are eligible will automatically be awarded funds to participate.
Eligible students are awarded FWS funds up to the approved institutional allotment. The student’s cost attendance (COA) and remaining budget are also considered when awarding work-study funds. Students will need to accept the Federal Work-Study award via their BannerWeb account prior to accepting a work assignment.
Students who did not indicate on the FAFSA their interest in Federal Work-Study can complete Federal Work-Study Application to determine their eligibility.
*Positions are available on campus or in a community service position on a part-time basis.
*Students are paid no less than minimum wage and work up to 20 hours per week.
Students are awarded Federal Work-Study funding up to their Cost of Attendance. Funding is limited as prescribed by the U.S. Department of Education.
