In this federally-funded, need-based aid program, students work part-time on campus to help pay for educational expenses.
You apply for work-study when you fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available beginning of each year for the following summer, fall, and spring semesters. For a FAFSA application, go to www.fafsa.gov or contact Student Financial Services.
Funding is limited. Students who submit the FAFSA by (the priority date) will be considered for the more desirable grants and federal work-study.
Students earn at least the federal minimum wage for their work and average about 10 hours per week.
Work-study awards do not need to be repaid. They are earned and you will only be paid for the hours you work.
