Earn up to $4,500 per year by working on campus, in the government, or in selected nonprofit agencies serving the community.
The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program encourages community service by providing jobs on campus and at nonprofit agencies in the community. Earnings from these jobs enable you to help pay for educational expenses but are paid to you in the form of a paycheck.
Work-Study is available to Pell Grant eligibility Undergraduate students on a first-come, first-serve basis. To be considered, students must put on their FAFSA that they are interested in Work-Study. Students awarded FWS dollars will be assisted by the Payroll Office in completing the required referral forms before beginning work.
To prove work authorization, students will need to present their driver’s license and social security card, or a certified birth certificate or passport to the Payroll Office.
Detailed information about the Work-Study hiring process is available through Student Employment.
