The Federal Work-Study program provides part-time employment to students who demonstrate financial need. Students who participate in the program earn income to help off-set education expenses.
The program encourages work related to the student's program of study and in community service. Many community service opportunities are available. Federal work-study positions pay between $10.00 - $20.00 per hour. Students can work up to 19 hours per week. Students may also hold more than one work-study position but cannot work for more than 19 hours combined in any one week period. Students should verify with a potential employer if a position is eligible for the work-study program or not. Work-study will begin around mid-July and always end at the end of the Spring term. To be considered, you must complete the application process described under Apply for Financial Aid.
Hospitals often offer educational assistance in exchange for future employment commitments. These opportunities require thoughtful choices that blend potential career satisfaction with immediate fiscal needs. Information regarding these and other employment opportunities is available through the Career Resource Center.
