Work Study FAQs

What is Work Study?

The Federal Work-Study Program provides students with the opportunity to work on campus or at approved off-campus non-profit organizations while they attend college. The purpose of any work-study program is to help a student pay educational costs through employment. It is financial aid that is considered self-help. Students must demonstrate financial need and be enrolled at least half-time (6 credits undergraduate) to be eligible.
