Student Employment

Federal Work Study (FWS)

This is a need-based, federally subsidized award for part-time employment, which is administered by the College. Earnings are paid directly to the student through bi-weekly paychecks. The students' weekly hours and wages are determined by the College and are limited by eligibility and fund availability. Students are only compensated for hours they actually work. The maximum amount of hours students may work a week is 20 when classes are in session, and 40 when classes are not in session.
