Work-Study and Work-Study Wait List

 provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student’s course of study. 

The Work-Study Wait List is for students who will be attending the term listed and who are interested in being considered for a work-study award. Keep in mind that placing your name on the wait list is not a guarantee you will receive a work-study award. Work-study awards are based on student-budget needs, funding availability, and potential employment.

To be considered for work-study, students must complete their FAFSA (with satisfied requirements), meet SAP (Satisfactory Academic Progress), and be enrolled in 6 credits hours or more for the semester. If approved for work-study, please be aware that this could decrease the amount you have been offered in loans.
