Federal Work-Study Information for Students 

Federal Work-Study funding helps provide part-time jobs for students with financial need. Being awarded Work-Study funds allows you to apply for jobs that specifically have the Work-Study designation. If you are awarded Work-Study and secure a work study job, you will be paid monthly for hours worked.


Employment regulations and guidelines, including minimum enrollment requirements, for Federal work-study student employment differ from those for regular student employment. Guidelines are located on the Financial Aid webpage about work-study eligibility.

For more information, visit the Work-Study page on the Financial Aid website.

Go to the Financial Aid website or contact the Financial Aid at for more information or assistance if you are an employer and are interested in hiring a student who has received Federal work-study financial assistance.
