* Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally funded program which gives students with financial need an opportunity for part-time, temporary employment. This employment is intended to allow students to earn money to help pay for their educational expenses. The FWS program encourages students to gain valuable career-related experience as well as promotes community-service employment opportunities. To become eligible for FWS, you must first demonstrate financial need by filling out the Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA). Students who are eligible for aid are sent an award letter which indicates the type and amount of aid to be received. If a student is eligible to earn FWS, the amount of eligibility will be listed on the award letter.

** Non-Federal Student Employment allows students to work on-campus under a non-federal work account. This employment is NOT based on need.

Any student is eligible for Non-Federal Student Employment. A student is considered to be anyone enrolled in at least one credit of course work.
