How does the Federal Work-Study Program Work?
The Federal Work-Study Program provides on and off-campus employment opportunities for eligible students. To be considered for a Federal Work-Study job, the student must have applied for a Pell Grant, and have unmet financial need as determined by the Federal Needs Analysis Methodology. The number of hours a student may work during the academic year is determined by the job to which he/she is assigned.  Most jobs on campus average ten hours per week.  All students are paid the federal minimum wage per hour.  Students are employed in various positions on campus.
