Increased distancing and PPE will be used to keep our student workers safe and students may choose a job that does not have interaction with people if preferred. Students must work hours in a job to earn a FWS paycheck. Students will not be paid for sick or quarentine absences.
Federal Work-Study (FWS) is an employment program which allows students to earn a paycheck through a financial aid award paid by federal funds. Since it is federal money, students must receive the award from Financial Aid each academic year (Fall through Spring) to work, and they must be paid hourly (for actual hours worked). Students can spend their earned wages on anything and can only earn up to their award amount (earnings are not applied to tuition).
FWS awards are made by the Financial Aid Office to U.S. citizens and permanent residents who qualify based on their FAFSA, if you have questions about eligiblity reach out to Financial Aid, email@example.com. The program provides part-time employment opportunities in two areas, On-Campus & Community Service.
There are numerous on-campus work-study employment opportunities for eligible students. Students may apply for any job they are interested in, but they may only hold one job at a time. Participating students may only work up to 20 hours per week, and are not permitted to work during scheduled classes .
