Federal Work-Study

Get a student job on campus!

Federal Work-Study provides part time jobs for students with financial need both on and off campus. Students can work a maximum of 19.5 hours per week and earn money to pay for educational expenses. Students can earn up to $2,500 per semester or $5,000 per year for up to 3 years. There are several departments on campus that have positions to fill each semester on a first come, first serve basis. Funds are limited, so not all qualifying students will receive an award.

For more information about Federal Work Study please see the Student Employee Handbook
