Federal Work Study (FWS) is a type of self-help aid that must be earned. The FWS award will not be deducted from the student's bill. A student will receive a bi-weekly paycheck based on hours worked.
A student not awarded FWS may search for a university funded student job. To search and apply for a university funded or FWS student job, go to the Career Services Center Web site.
