Federal Work-Study (FWS)
The Federal Work-Study program gives employment to students who need income to help meet the costs of postsecondary education. Work-study awards are made on a term basis.
To be eligible for a FWS job, a student must have a "financial/unmet need." His/her cost of attendance must be greater than the expected family contribution (EFC). FWS may not be awarded to a student if that award, when combined with other resources, would exceed the student's financial unmet need for that award year. Resources would include Federal Pell Grant awards, HOPE Grant awards, Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG), Veterans educational benefits, scholarships, WIA benefits, Department of Labor benefits, and FSEOG awards.
Students will be paid at least $7.25 per hour and paid monthly by the College. Students can work up to 20 hours per week, depending on their available program hours.
- Must be Pell Grant Eligible
- Must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours
- Maintain a 2.0 or greater GPA
