Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study (FWS) may be available to a student if you demonstrate financial need through the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). A work study award allows you to apply to any of our work study job opportunities on campus. FWS awards do not go directly to student loans but are paid bi-weekly in a paycheck to student employees on regular pay days (15th and last day of month).

Apply for Federal Work Study Award

To be eligible for a FWS position, students must:

  • Have an accepted Federal Work Study award on Campus Connection (please allow 24-48 hours after accepting for the information to load into the system)

    • Be enrolled in 6 or more credits

    • Be free of any financial aid holds including but not limited to Verification, Documentation and be meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress standards as defined by the BSC.

    • If you do not have a FWS award offered to you on Campus Connection, you may request to be considered, provided you have already completed the FAFSA. To submit a request please contact Financial Aid.

      For more information on Work Study awards and eligibility requirements please visit the Financial Aid office on the 1st floor of Schafer Hall or email
