Federal Work Study

Eligible students may work part-time while in college to help defray their educational cost.

  • Students are paid an hourly rate and receive a paycheck every two weeks for the hours worked.
  • Students cannot earn more than the amount of their work-study award.
  • Work hours range from 10 to 15 hours work per week.
  • All students awarded work-study are placed on the job by the college's Placement Office. (The College Work-Study Manual provides further information.) FAFSA is required.
  • Work-Study funds are allocated each year by the Federal government. The Financial Aid Office will award work-study to eligible students until the funds for the year are exhausted.
