Federal Work-Study Employment

Federal Work-Study is a need-based aid program that is awarded to students who have submitted their FAFSA by the priority date and have demonstrated financial need.  This program is available to citizens or permanent residents of the United States.  Work-study earnings are considered taxable income and treated just like any other employment when completing tax returns.  Work-study earnings are, however, not considered as income when you re-apply for financial aid the next year and are not subject to FICA withholdings.

Federal Work-Study employment is performed on campus with work schedules set up around classes.  Students who receive a Federal Work-Study allocation as a part of the financial aid package are eligible to apply for work-study jobs.  Students can earn up to the amount listed on their Award Letter.

NOTE: Proceeds from Federal Work-Study employment are paid with funds directly deposited to the student's savings or checking account based on their number of hours worked and are not automatically subtracted from the student bill.


Regular Student Payroll Employment

Students do not need to have work study or display financial need to apply.

All on-campus students are paid with funds directly deposited to their savings or checking accounts based on their number of hours worked.
