Work Study Jobs

Both federal and state work-study programs provide our students with opportunities to work part-time while attending school. Students gain valuable work experience while earning money for college. Often students enhance their course work by integrating what they learn in class with real-world work experience. Work-study is a financial aid program, and we determine eligibility for funding based on information provided on the FAFSA or WASFA applications.

How you’re paid

You must earn work-study funds by successfully obtaining a job and earning the funds you receive. Work-study students receive a regular paycheck throughout the quarter based on the employer’s pay schedule. Since you must earn work-study funds, they are not available at the beginning of the quarter to help you pay tuition and fees, and purchase books.
