There are three types of student employment: federal work-study, institutional work-study, and off-campus employment. A student must meet certain eligibility requirements to work in either a federal work-study or an institutional work-study program. To apply, seeWork Study Application. If you are interested in either program, please contact:
Black Hills State University Student Financial Services 1200 University Street Unit 9670 Spearfish, SD 57799-9670
Who is eligible? In this federally-funded, need-based aid program, students work part-time on campus to help pay for educational expenses.
How do I apply? You apply for work-study when you fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available beginning October 1 of each year for the following summer, fall and spring semesters. For a FAFSA application, go towww.fafsa.gov or contact Student Financial Services.
Funding is limited. Students who submit the FAFSA by December 1 (the priority date) will be considered for the more desirable grants and federal work-study.
