Under Federal regulations, to receive Federal Work Study a student must:
- Be enrolled in at least 6 credits per semester in an eligible program
- Be eligible for Title IV aid
- Maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress
- Demonstrate financial need (based on information from FAFSA)
- Students will be awarded a maximum allotment for Federal Work Study funds which is their “earnings limit.” Students should work with their supervisors to schedule their work in such a way that they do not exceed their earnings limit before the year ends. Students may not work after they reach their earnings limit.
- Federal Work-Study Allocations change annually, which means that the annual allotment for each student is subject to change each year.
- Eligibility must be re-evaluated each year by submission of a renewal FAFSA and a new Work Study Employment application.
- Students are selected for jobs based on the qualifications indicated on their application, the needs of individual position supervisors, and the availability of positions.
BRCC offers a variety of on and off campus Federal Work Study Jobs.
