Student Employment Programs
are eligible to work part-time on campus in a variety of settings.
Working on campus can provide valuable career experience in addition to
helping to offset educational expenses.
Students who are employed and paid under the Federal Work-Study Program
must demonstrate financial need by having completed the FAFSA.
Anticipated earnings are not applied to student accounts. Rather,
students are paid by check bimonthly (every two weeks), and are paid at least the federal minimum
wage. A Federal Work-Study award does not mean that you are
guaranteed a certain amount of earnings, but that you may earn up to a
specific total amount.
