Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a need-based employment program administered by the University. Priority is given to full-time students who apply on time.
Federal Work Study is not credited to your account balance as you will receive bi-weekly paychecks for the hours you have worked. You will need to sign a student contract and submit it to the Office of Human Resources. The contract will be provided by the Office of Financial Aid.
If a student is not eligible for Federal Work-Study, he/she still has the opportunity to work part-time on campus in a Budget job. Budget jobs are part-time positions on campus that are open to all students, regardless of financial need.

A budget job allows a student to work on campus and be paid through the department’s individual budget. Eligibility for need-based Federal Work Study is not required in order to apply for a budget position.
To apply for a budget position, please contact the supervisor associated with the position. If hired, the supervisor will need to complete a Budget Form. Once approved by the supervisor, the student worker will need to return the form to the Financial Aid Office for review.
All finalized paperwork then needs to be submitted to Human Resources by the student worker.
