The Federal Work-Study Program provides part-time employment for undergraduate students that demonstrate financial need in accordance with federal guidelines, allowing them to earn money to help pay for educational expenses.
Federal Work-Study wages will be at least the current minimum wage, but may be higher according to the type of work you do and the skills required.
- Work-study positions are not grants that are directly applied to one's tuition bill. Rather, work-study earnings are paid biweekly based on the number of hours worked.
- Income earned through the Work-Study Program is not exempt from federal or state taxation. Therefore each student must complete the appropriate documentation prior to starting to work.
- Only students that have been awarded work-study as part of their financial aid are eligible to apply for work-study positions
