Federal Work Study (FWS) provides part-time employment opportunities to eligible students to help meet the costs of post-secondary education. Based on the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), eligible students are awarded an allotment which may be earned through part-time employment in FWS approved positions either on or off campus. The program provides students with opportunities for employment arranged around class schedules. Students must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours per semester) to be eligible for this program. If you wish to be considered for this program, you should complete a Work-Study Student Employment Application.
