Work-Study provides part-time jobs for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay for educational expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to students’ course of study. Work-Study is available to full-time and part-time students.
If you would like to be considered for Work-Study, mark “yes” to the question on the FAFSA that asks whether you are interested in student employment.
