Subsidized by the federal government, work-study is a need-based financial aid award that allows you to work and earn money. To be considered, you must complete a FAFSA each academic year. Therefore, you must be awarded work-study before you can begin working a work-study position. Work-study positions are available throughout the campus in a wide variety of offices. Students work during college hours and enjoy the convenience of having a job directly on campus and close to their classes.
