Eligibility for FWS is based on financial need as determined by the FAFSA and in conjunction with other awarded aid. Work schedules are arranged by the employer and student. Students are paid monthly, and annual earnings may be capped by the amount indicated in the financial aid award letter. The current minimum hourly rate is $7.25. Some students may be paid slightly more based on job requirements.
Students who receive a work-study job as part of their financial aid award should apply for a job as early as possible in the semester. Employment opportunities and contact information will be sent to students who were awarded work-study prior to the fall semester.
