Work Study and Student Employment

What is work study? 

When you apply for financial aid, work study is one type of aid for which you may qualify. Work study is not applied directly to your tuition account. Instead, you work at a job and receive a paycheck twice a month. Work study positions can be on or off campus. 

The name "work study" is confusing! You can't usually study while you are working at these jobs, but they are jobs designed for students with a flexible schedule that works around your classes. 

All work study openings are part-time positions. The maximum amount of hours and money a student can earn is determined by financial need and funds available. We work to match students with jobs that relate to their career pathway.
