Student Employment

Welcome to the Student Employment Office

The Federal Work-Study program (FWS) provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to pay for educational expenses. The program encourages employment through Federal Community Service (FCS) and Federal Work Study (FWS) that is related to the student's course of study. To determine your Federal Work Study (FWS) eligibility you must first attend a Student Employment Workshop or Webinar. The workshops and webinars are very informative to students who are interested in employment opportunities on and off campus. It also informs students as to the hiring process and the necessary documentations needed.
