Federal Work Study
Federal Work-study is a program that provides jobs for graduate students demonstrating financial need. Most Federal Work-study positions are available on campus. However, there are several opportunities for students to work off campus performing community service work.
You can view a listing of Federal Work-study employers on campus and community. (In some cases, work-study assignments can be converted into a Graduate Assistantship. Check with the Chair of the academic department in which you will enroll.)
The amount of your Federal Work-study offer as indicated in your Financial Aid Package is the maximum you are allowed to earn. You will be paid directly for Federal Work-study earnings in the form of a paycheck. Federal Work-study awards are not credited to your student account.
Federal Work-study earnings are excluded from income on your subsequent year’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), so it doesn’t affect your eligibility for financial aid in the future.
