Federal College Work Study Program

The Federal College Work Study Program provides part-time employment for undergraduate or graduate students. Students employed under this program are paid between $7.25 - $7.50 per hour (no benefits), are paid biweekly, and work approximately 20 hours per week. The average award is $3,000 per year.

Only degree seeking undergraduates and graduate professional students who are U.S. citizens or who are in the U.S. on a permanent resident visa are eligible for the program. Applicants must be admitted to the University for at least 3 credit hours and be in good academic standing as determined by the Office of Financial Aid. Students are reviewed for academic progress at the close of each semester.
