On Campus Work Study
The Federal Work-Study program (FWS) provides part-time jobs during the academic year and full- or part-time jobs during the summer for students who demonstrate exceptional financial need and who must earn a part of their educational expenses. Jobs may be on- or off-campus with a public or private nonprofit agency including jobs in community service areas. Part-time FWS students work 10-20 hours per week and will receive a paycheck every two weeks for the actual number of hours worked. Salary for FWS students will be no less than the current minimum wage and will also be associated with the type of work performed and skills required. The FWS award has a maximum earning limit that cannot be exceeded. FWS funds are awarded on a first-come, first-complete basis to qualified financial aid applicants.
Summer Federal Work Study
For the summer term, there are two types of FWS awards. Full-time FWS is only available if you do not enroll in any summer courses. You are expected to work full-time and save 100 percent of your earnings (less taxes and transportation expenses) to be used as a resource for the upcoming academic year. Part-time FWS is available if you are enrolled for summer at least half-time. It provides part-time employment for students who must earn a part of their educational expenses for the summer term.
