Federal Work Study is offered through the federal campus-based aid program and provides employment opportunities to eligible matriculated students. Priority consideration is given to students who file their FAFSA by March 1st. The award amount is based on the student's financial need, the availability of funds to the campus, the number of hours the student can work per week, and the current pay rate.  Students receive FWS funds in the form of a bi-weekly paycheck for the hours you have worked.
