Work-study programs offer you the opportunity to gain valuable work experience while earning money for college. You can enhance your current course work by integrating what you learn in class with real-world work experience.

Types of positions available

Both on-campus and off-campus work-study positions are available. If you’re eligible for work-study, you’ll apply for available jobs that are posted on campus and receive a paycheck based on the rate and hours you’ve worked.

How you’re paid

Since work-study funds are earned, they’re not available at the beginning of the quarter to help you pay tuition and fees. Work-study earnings may be used to supplement current expenses, such as supplies, transportation, or living expenses. Or if you work during the summer term, they should be saved in a personal bank account to help pay expenses for an upcoming quarter during that year. An additional form is available online if you’re interested in applying for work-study.
