Federal Work Study

The Federal Work Study (FWS) program, a form of student employment, awards monies for part-time employment to students with financial need. Recipients of this award must be enrolled at least half-time (minimum 6-credits) and meet the satisfactory academic progress requirements for financial aid. Students are paid at least the minimum wage and receive their pay bi-monthly.

The Financial Aid Office determines earnings limits (e.g. FWS award) and the student will be notified of this limit via their award offer. If interested in the Federal Work Study program, contact the Financial Aid Office. To view available FWS positions go to the Student Employment website.
