Student Employment

The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA) and the Career Center offer employment services to students in Federal Work Study and Work Assist positions.

Federal Work-Study (FWS)

  • FWS provides part-time employment for undergraduate and graduate students who have established financial need through the submission of the FAFSA.
  • Earnings are not applied to your account. You receive a paycheck on the 15th of each month for the hours worked the previous month.
  • You may not earn more than your awarded amount for work-study.
  • Positions are available on and off campus.  Off-campus positions are within non-profit organizations in the local community.  While the pay rate is considerably more for community service positions, you must have your own transportation to the job site.
  • If you are eligible, and funds are available, FWS will be included in your financial aid award. 
  •  Explore available student employment opportunities for FWS and non-need based positions at Seawork
  • Since FWS is a need-based, federally aid program with limited funds, not all students will receive an award. Many departments hire students under the work assist program and financial need is not a consideration.
