Work-Study

A A

Through the federal government, The Federal Work-Study program help provide part-time jobs for students, allowing them to earn money to assist with paying for their education. The jobs encourage community service work and often are related to the student's major.   

Students work an assigned number of hours per week, depending on how much aid they are awarded under the program. They are paid the federal minimum wages at the minimum.
  
All work-study students must obtain a work-study contract and submit all work eligible  forms to the Office of Student Financial Aid before reporting to work . The contract will explain the hours to be worked, how and when students are paid, and other terms. In order to continue to be eligible for work-study, work performance must be satisfactory at all times.
