Work-Study

Work-study is an award that allows you to work on campus and earn a regular paycheck.

Some benefits of work-study:
  • Your job is convenient – it’s easier to get to work on campus between classes.
  • You’ll gain valuable work experience and build your resume with professional experience.
  • FICA tax is not deducted from your earnings, so you’ll have more take home pay than a comparable off-campus wage.
  • Campus employers make your education a priority and design work schedules around classes.
  • Work-study earnings are deducted from your income on future FAFSAs, so you could be eligible for more aid.
