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:

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.

Regardless of FWS eligibility, all students can participate in on-campus employment opportunities at BSC. Students must be enrolled in 6 credits to be considered a student employee. Positions and wages vary across departments.
