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.

  1. 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.
  2. Complete and submit the Work-Study Interest Form to the Financial Aid Office. Eligible students that have submitted this form will be enrolled into the online Student Employment training course through D2L. Ineligible students will be notified.
  3. Complete the Student Employment training course, and mandatory quiz. Once completed, you will be provided with a link to your Work-Study Authorization Form, which you can print and complete with your supervisor. You will also have access to the required employment forms needed to begin employment. These steps must be completed fully and correctly before you are eligible to begin working. Once forms are fully complete, upload them using the Work-Study Document Uploader.
  4. You and your supervisor will be informed when you are eligible to begin working.

Within the D2L Student Employment training course, you will learn all about the work-study program and have access to several helpful resources, including:

  • How to find a job, and where to search
  • Supervisor contact information
  • Pay schedule (including dates to have your time submitted)
  • Hours and wage information
  • Program policies
  • Employment forms
