In order to be eligible, a student must:
  • Submit a FAFSA and demonstrate financial need.
  • Be enrolled in the current semester.
  • Maintain satisfactory academic progress.

In order to be selected for employment, an eligible candidate should apply to the office which he or she is interested in working for.

All Federal Work Study students are expected to work in accordance with the tasks and schedules set by their supervisors, as well as observe a Confidentiality of Student Records Agreement. If a student withdraws from all classes they must notify their supervisor immediately and terminate employment. Failure to perform acceptable work or observe policies will result in loss of employment with the FWS program.
