Student employment is open to all students who apply for work-study and demonstrate financial need by completing a FAFSA for the applicable award year. Students who qualify for this program may work on campus, or off campus if performing community service activities or research. A community service and/or research contract must be in place before beginning employment. 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. Awards are based on the availability of federal funding.
