What is Work-Study?
The work-study program provides on-campus jobs for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses.Positions are available in various locations on campus. See below for job descriptions list.
How much will I make?
Your work-study wages will be $7.25 per hour for the 2016-2017 school year. The school will pay you directly at least once a month. It is the student’s responsibility to present their student identification card to pick up their check from the Business Office or endorse it to the school to credit their account.
Can I work as many hours as I want?
No. The amount you earn cannot exceed your total work-study award. Awards can range from 30 – 40 hours per month. When awarding work-study, all financial aid (scholarships, loans, grants, etc.) is considered. Not everyone who applies will qualify. Work-study must go to eligible housed students first.
How do I apply for work-study?
A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must first be completed at www.fafsa.ed.gov and you must indicate that you are interested in work-study.
What if I am awarded work-study?
Students awarded work-study must complete paperwork with signatures from student and supervisor. You must provide a copy of your drivers’ license or student identification card and social security card or birth certificate BEFORE you can start work. You will have two weeks to provide this information. If not provided in that time frame, your work-study will be removed. If you are awarded and choose to decline the award, you must notify the Financial Aid Office immediately.
