U.S. citizens and permanent residents can apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Receiving funds awarded under the Work-Study Program is not guaranteed. It is dependent on funding, registering and attending classes, locating a job on-campus and maintaining employment throughout the academic year. The number of hours you will be working per week will depend on the department's needs, the amount of your award, and your schedule.
Students that have maximum eligibility and work the entire semester are budgeted for 19 hours per week; no more than eight hours per day, at $8.50 per week. Student employees must never work more than 19 hours a week.
