Federal and state funds provide part-time jobs for students who exhibit financial need, allowing them the opportunity to earn money to assist with education expenses.  Work study positions are not guaranteed, and do not pay out in a lump sum like other financial aid awards.


The student must demonstrate financial need as determined through the FAFSA or TASFA applications and the University’s estimated Cost of Attendance.  Work study funds are available to undergraduate and graduate students who demonstrate financial need through the FAFSA or TASFA and are enrolled in at least six credit hours.  Not all students who are eligible for work study will receive an award.  Students earn an hourly wage and can work up to 20 hours per week at a job on campus or certain community service positions.

To search and apply for work study positions see the Career Site for job postings.
