Student Financial Services
Prospective Student Information
The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program gives you an opportunity to earn money to help pay for your educational expenses, interpersonal skills, time management, and workplace etiquette within the student’s job. This program provides opportunities to serve the community (including tutoring) and to work in areas related to your course of study. Your employer knows you are a college student first. Therefore, employers try to be as flexible as possible in scheduling your work hours around your class schedule.
Your supervisor may become an excellent future reference. Your FWS job adds a new dimension to your career planning and distinguishes your background from other job seekers. Part-time employment through FWS enhances your education and adds a new perspective to your studies. You will see things from another point of view, which will help to develop your analytical and critical thinking skills.
- Based on financial need, an allocation may be included in a student's financial aid award notification.
- Please note, this is an average amount based on 10-12 hours per week. Students are not limited to this allocation, but they are not permitted to work more than 20 hours per week.
- Federal College Work Study is not deducted from the bill. Students receive a bi-weekly pay check, if a position is secured.
- FoxQuest Online Job Portal will be available to students in mid-August to complete a profile and upload a resume in preparation for future job opportunities.
Campus Employment also allows students, regardless of financial need, the opportunity to work on campus while boosting their resume, time management, problem-solving, and other life skills. Students who have special skills, or experience (ex. Computer skills, lifeguards) or work schedules that certain positions on campus require, may be hired at any time. After the 2 week period for only work-study hire, (beginning of Fall and Spring semesters), all students are eligible to apply for available jobs through the FoxQuest online job portal.
International students are eligible to work only through the Campus Employment Program. Available jobs will be listed on the FoxQuest online job portal. For further information, International Students can review the Employment Guide for International Students.
