Student Employment

The Federal Work-Study program (FWS) provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay for educational expenses. The program encourages community service  work and work related to the student's course of study. To determine your Federal Work-Study eligibility, we ask that you attend a Student Employment Workshop first. The workshops are meant to inform students of job opportunities on and off campus,as well as the hiring process.

Student Employment Workshops are held at the beginning of each semester during common hour. If you are unable to attend one of the in-person workshops, you have the opportunity to complete an online version called the Student Employment Webinar. You must watch the video in its entirety and include the 6 digit code at the end. In approximately 3 business days, after watching video, you should receive an email notification with follow-up instructions.
