Federal Work-Study offers an excellent opportunity to not only gain extra money for college related expenses, but valuable work experience. As with any Federal Work-Study position, both on-campus work-study and off-campus work-study, you are required to obtain the signature of the supervisor of the site at which you wish to work on your Employment Application. It is to your advantage to select and contact a work-study site as soon as possible. Work sites can fill up quickly and the longer you wait to complete your paperwork may limit your work-study choices. If a site that you wish to work at is not listed in this listing, please contact the Financial Aid Office as we may be able to make arrangements to include it as a site.

Work-Study Requirements

Beginning Fall 2023,  regular FWS students are paid $10.00 per hour and students working for the Physical Plant Department (Maintenance & Housekeeping) are paid $11.50 per hour.

Important: If you are awarded work-study and want to participate, please complete your paperwork requirements as soon as possible. Work-study sites fill quickly and you may jeopardize the chance to work at the office or department you wish to work by waiting too long.  All paperwork must be completed by June 30th each year.  If your paperwork is not in by that date, your work-study will be canceled.

Note: Each new student participating in the Federal Work-Study Program is asked to attend a Federal Work-Study seminar.  Those students required to attend are notified by mail and via their FWS supervisor.
