Work Study

Earn money to pay for educational expenses.

Federal work study gives you the opportunity to work on campus or at an approved not-for-profit organization located in the community.

To qualify, fill out your FAFSA.


Wages are paid in part by the federal government. Your paycheck comes every two weeks.


Work-study is typically 10-20 hours per week in various departments.

Available Jobs

Postings of work-study jobs are located outside the Financial Aid Office. Types of jobs usually include office aides, tutors, childcare assistants, lab assistants, library aides, note takers and peer tutors.

Regular (non-work study) campus jobs are also posted outside the Financial Aid Office.


Applications for all work study or non-work study jobs (PDF) can be downloaded or picked up in the Financial Aid Office. Completed applications should be returned to the Financial Aid Office.
