College Work-Study

The College Work-Study Program provides on-campus jobs for students who have applied for financial aid and demonstrated financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay educational expenses. Students awarded College Work-Study must maintain a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0. Students who have been awarded College Work-Study will be notified of this award via the Financial Aid Award Notice. The student's Award Notice will include specific information on how to apply for a Work-Study position. Job postings will be available online after July 1 for the upcoming academic year. Students are not guaranteed a job. You must interview with potential employers before you are hired. Students who do not secure a job will have their Work-Study award cancelled.
