What is Federal Work Study?

Federal Work Study (FWS) is a federal financial aid work program that provides students the opportunity to work a part-time job on or off campus and earn a paycheck to decrease student loan debt. In order to be eligible, students must apply for financial aid, demonstrate financial need, and be enrolled at least half time. The FWS program has many benefits, such as:

  • Provides job opportunities for students in need of financial assistance to meet college costs
  • Provides opportunities to gain skills that will enhance future educational and career goals
  • Provides beneficial resume building experience and training and can lead to career opportunities while still in school
  • Earnings are “removed” from income on the subsequent FAFSA. In other words, earnings are not considered when calculating financial need for future financial aid

Applying for Federal Work Study

Students will need to fill out the FAFSA and answer “yes” to the question regarding interest in Federal Work Study (FWS). This is needed to determine eligibility for a FWS position. Apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.

Checking for FWS Award Notification

After applying for and completing a financial aid file with the school, the Financial Aid Office will send an award letter. Students will be directed to review their award online via their Student Self Service account. Once a student is offered FWS as part of the award package, and is interested in employment, follow the instructions in the FWS Hiring Process section below.

Available Jobs

FWS positions are available in a wide variety of on/off campus departments. Here is an online listing of current job positions.
