Federal Work-Study Program3

Federal Work Study (FWS) is a federally funded program administered by the Student Employment Office. The program promotes employment to help students meet educational expenses. A student must be approved for financial aid and have a demonstrated financial need to qualify for FWS. FWS eligible students can either work on campus, or off campus in a non-profit organization. Federal work study students are always given first priority for on campus recruitment.

Students who received work-study as part of their financial aid package will receive an e-mail in mid-August from our office that contains information about the work-study program. Work-Study and non-work-study jobs will be posted to our website in mid-August.
