Federal Work-Study is a federal program available to qualified students who demonstrate financial need and a willingness to work to make up for the deficiency. Students are employed on campus is positions such as classroom assistants, laboratory assistants, and library assistants. We also have assignments located at a number of community partners that work with children, community action agencies and financial organizations that are available. Preference is given to students with the greatest demonstrated need, with the typical student working approximately 15-20 hours a week. An additional advantage to the Work-Study program is that students are often placed in positions that give them hands-on experience, priming them for a more confident entry into the workforce upon graduation.
