The Federal Work-Study Program provides eligible students the opportunity to earn money for educational expenses. To be considered for Federal Work-Study, students must complete the FAFSA on or before March 15th and they must select that they are interested in Work Study on their FAFSA.

Work-Study funds do not apply directly to a student's bill. Students work and receive a paycheck for the hours they worked each pay period. 

A student's total earnings from Work-Study cannot exceed the amount awarded.

Students who have been awarded Work-Study should refer to the Work-Study Employee page for additional information.
