Student Employment Opportunities
Federal Work-Study Program
The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) This program provides jobs for a very limited number of students with financial need who can work part-time to help pay part of their educational expenses. The Student Financial Aid Office arranges jobs on campus for students to work 10-15 hours per week, scheduled in a way that will not conflict with classes. An average award is about $1900 per academic year. Paychecks are processed once a month for the hours actually worked. To apply for this program, a student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). A student should indicate "'yes" on the FAFSA when asked if he or she is "interested in work-study or a part-time job" .
College Work Aid Program (CWA)
College departments may employ students who do not qualify for the Federal Work-Study Program. The general policy is that a college department will hire a student worker independently. Student should inquire directly with the department of the availability of work Aid positions. The Student Accounts Office only assists in processing the paper work after a student has been hired by that department. Students work 10-15 hours per week, scheduled in a way that will not conflict with classes. An average pay is about $1900 per academic year. Paychecks are processed once a month for the hours actually worked.
