What is Work-Study?

Who is Eligible for Work-Study?
Eligibility is determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and exhibit financial need to be evaluated for this program. An award reflects the maximum amount that a student may earn. If a student is eligible and indicates interest on the FAFSA for the Work-Study Program, an application will be sent with the Financial Aid Award Letter. The actual amount of earnings will depend on the number of hours worked and rate of pay. A student must be enrolled at least half time (6credits required for the students program of study) and maintain satisfactory academic progress standards to work. A Work-Study Application, which can be obtained in the Financial Aid Office, must also be completed and on file. A Work-Study award is not a guarantee of employment, but early applicants have the best chance of being offered a position.
