The Federal Work-Study Program provides jobs for students with financial need, allowing you to earn money to help pay education expenses. These jobs may be on or off-campus. Students are employed on an hourly basis for a maximum of twenty (20) hours per week. Federal Work-Study wages will be at least the current federal minimum wage ($7.25 per hour). The total Federal Work-Study award depends on when you apply your level of need, and the funding level of the school. Application and placement of jobs for Federal Work-Study is made through the Office of Financial Aid.
