To be eligible for work-study, students must fill out their FAFSA application for the current school year, must be in a financial aid eligible program, and must be at least enrolled half-time (6 credits). Work-study is awarded to students who have answered "yes" to the following question on the FAFSA application (Are you interested in being considered for work-study?). Usually students work between 10-20 hours a week depending on the department at $7.50 per hour.

Responsibilities as Work-Study Student
If you as a student are hired for a work-study position, you need to remember that this is a job and professionalism is a must. Always make sure and check with your supervisor to see what the dress code is for that department. Also before doing a job for a different supervisor, make sure that your main supervisor does not have a job for you already, so that you avoid any issues. If you need to miss work, do not forget to notify your supervisor.
