A Study in Work

Earn While You Learn

The work-study program is basically a part-time job that’s awarded (and funded) by the Financial Aid Office, to help you earn money to pay for your education expenses.

How It Works

The program is based on financial need and you must be accepted into the program to qualify.

  • Find a position, determine your hours, and get paid an hourly rate.
  • Community service and work related to your major is encouraged.
  • If you did not receive Work-Study funding but would like to, contact the Financial Aid Office.
