On Campus Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study program allows undergraduate and graduate students with financial need to work part-time on or off campus to earn money to help pay for educational expenses. The program encourages on-campus work related to your course of study and a flexible work schedule. If awarded work-study, you may work up to 13 hours a week, depending on your class schedule and academic progress. Work-study earnings are at least minimum wage. To apply for work-study, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and indicate your interest in work-study.
