Student employment is open to all students who apply for work-study and demonstrate financial need. Students who qualify for this program may work on campus or off campus if performing community service activities or research. The Office of Student Financial Services determines the total amount students may earn. This is NOT a loan program. Students who obtain Federal Work-Study employment will be paid bi-weekly at the rate of $11.00 per hour for regular work-study and $13.00 per hour for community service or research work-study. Awards are based on the availability of federal funding.
