Federal Work-Study (FWS) is awarded as part of your financial aid package and appears on the award letter.
Once financial eligibility has been established, students are interviewed for placement by Student Employment. An attempt is made to take into consideration the student's interests and abilities as well as the needs to the various departments.
Placement priority is given to Work-Study Award recipients; however, all matriculated students at least part-time, have an opportunity to seek employment. Students are considered for employment throughout the year.
To be considered for a position as an Alternate applicant, students must file the Free Application For Student Aid (FAFSA) which is available at www.fafsa.ed.gov, be eligible for federal aid, and complete a "Work-Study Placement form." Alternate applicants will be considered for placement on the basis of financial need, skills, and availability of positions. Since funds are limited, please file early.
In addition to on-campus positions, students are encouraged to participate in the Community Service Programs funded through Work-Study. Our America Reads and Counts Challenge Program (ARCC) offers students positions tutoring children from Pre-K - 6th grade in reading and math. The SEO will provide guidance to eligible students interested in seeking positions that benefit the community.
Students not FWS eligible may also apply for positions such as Ram Van Drivers or Student Aides for Security among others.
