Work Study for residential students
A student interested in work-study must fill out the FAFSA to determine eligibility. If eligible, the student contacts a potential supervisor to express his/her interest. If a position is available in that area, the student completes the work-study application forms and submits the forms to Student Financial Services. The student must complete all forms and have them approved by Human Resources before beginning work.
Work-study earnings are considered a part of the total financial aid package. If the student earns $1,000 in work-study, that $1,000 cannot be awarded in other financial aid, such as loans. Students may not work more than 29 hours per week, and are responsible for keeping track of the amount worked so they do not go over their award.
Students are encouraged to consider working in community service organizations. Hospice, nursing homes, and schools are some of the community service opportunities available.
