Work-study is a student employment program that allows eligible students to work part-time in (mostly) on-campus positions. Work-study jobs are especially convenient since they allow students to schedule their work hours around their academic schedule.

Because work-study is a form of need-based financial aid, students must first complete the FAFSA to determine their eligibility to participate. Be sure to select “yes” on your FAFSA application when asked if you are interested in being considered for work-study. Expressing interest does not guarantee eligibility or a work-study position.

If you need help completing the work-study steps, see your supervisor or the Financial Aid Office on your campus.
