Federal Work Study

Program Overview

Federal Work Study (FWS) is a financial aid program that provides a limited number of part-time job opportunities for Title IV eligible students, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses when not in class. Positions are primarily on campus, but there are some off-campus jobs, typically in the local school system or with a local community service group or agency.

  • Work up to 19.5 hours/week, with a flexible schedule that doesn’t interfere with classes.
  • Eligibility based on current FAFSA; must be eligible for Pell and enrolled in a Pell-eligible program of study.
  • To qualify, must be in good academic standing, and maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress.
  • Criminal background screening required prior to employment.
  • Note: Positions are filled depending on availability of jobs and money to fund positions, and a position may not be available in your preferred area. Completing the FWS application does not guarantee you will receive a job.
