Federal Work-Study Program
The Federal Work-Study Program provides on- and off-campus employment opportunities for eligible students.
To be considered for a Federal Work-Study job, the student must have applied for a Pell Grant, submitted a Federal Work-Study Job Application, and have unmet financial need as determined by the Federal Needs Analysis Methodology. A background check will be performed on each student placed in a work-study job that requires them to work with minors. The student must be cleared before they are allowed to work with any minors.
The number of hours a student may work during the academic year is determined by the job to which he/she is assigned. Most jobs on campus average between 32 and 40 hours per month. All students are paid the federal minimum wage per hour and are paid on a monthly basis. Students can be employed to work in the Quave, in the Production Center, in the Admissions Office, in the Records Office, as assistants to instructors, and in other positions.
