The federally funded work study program provides jobs for degree-seeking first-year undergraduate students and traditional undergraduate transfer students who need financial aid to help pay educational expenses. Community service and work related to the student’s course of study are encouraged and available to students who have sufficient need according to results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Returning students must complete their annual FAFSA by April 1 to ensure consideration for work study because of limited funding. New students should complete their FAFSA by May 1. The maximum award for a full-time student is typically $1,500, while part-time students can get $750 or $1,125 depending on whether they are considered half-time (6-8 credits) or three-quarter-time (9-11 credits) students.
For students who do not qualify for work study, there are a limited number of other student employment opportunities available on campus. Contact the Office of Career Development for more information.
