The Office of Human Resources administers the placement for the Federal Work Study (FWS) program. This program provides jobs for undergraduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay educational expenses. The program encourages community service and work that is related to students' course of study.
Unlike other types of financial aid, work study is paid directly to the student as it is earned. There are a wide variety of work study positions available on- and off-campus, with schedules designed to meet each student's individual needs.
Eligibility for FWS is determined by completing the federal financial aid application process. Students must complete the FAFSA form, and must accept work study on the Student Aid Award Letter.
All on-campus FWS job vacancy listings are posted on the website. Please follow the link to the right. Students may not apply until awarded work study and a signed Student Aid Award Letter has been submitted.
Each student is responsible for his or her own job search. When classes are in session, students may work up to 20 hours per week on the FWS payroll. No student is allowed to work over his or her maximum earnings limit on the FWS payroll.
Students are expected to work as scheduled. Failure to report to work will result in forfeiture of the Work Study award.
If the student financial aid package does not include FWS, students must make an appointment with the Office of Office of Student Financial Services to inquire about the availability of funds and to determine eligibility.
