The purpose of the Federal Work-Study (FWS) program is to help students with their financial need by providing them with a part-time job. Not every student will qualify, but those who do will be placed in various on and off campus positions to help offset a portion of their educational expenses. Positions available through the FWS Program may involve working in a private or non-profit organization. Students cannot exceed a maximum workload of 20 hours per week, while school is in session, unless approved by the Financial Aid Office.

Student Eligibility
