Work Study

Federal and State Work-Study

Work Study is a need-based financial aid award. It is not a grant (you must work to earn it), and it is not a loan (you do not have to repay it). Students must qualify for need-based financial aid to receive Work Study. Funds are limited, so not all qualifying students will receive an award

The Work Study program subsidizes a student's hourly wage. It is a "pot" of money set aside to pay a portion or your entire hourly wage. For you the student, it is much like working any other job: you work a number of hours in a pay period at an hourly wage and receive a paycheck twice per month in the months that you work.
