Federal Work-Study (FWS) provides part-time jobs for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. This program allows students to work around their class schedules while obtaining valuable work experience. Students will receive a regular paycheck for hours worked. Unlike grants and loans, you cannot apply your FWS eligibility to your account for payment of tuition and fees. Jobs are available on-campus and at various community service off-campus sites.
If you were not offered work-study in your award letter but are interested, please submit a written request for consideration to the Financial Aid Office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students who have been awarded work-study will be notified when they can complete the NEW Online Student Employment Training for Students through myBlackboard. The training must be completed by ALL new work study students and any student that did not participate in the program during the last academic year. After the training, students can apply for a position using the University’s online employment site and clicking on Student Positions. Federal Work-Study students can apply for both “Student Work-Study” and “Student Employee” positions.
For current FWS positions available at the University, please visit Human Resources.
Students who have been awarded work-study will be notified when they can begin the online training through myBlackboard.
