How to apply

How it works

  • If there is demonstrated need, students will be packaged with Federal Work-Study and the financial aid award letter will include the dollar amount of the Federal Work-Study award. The amount on the award letter indicates the maximum earnings permitted during the academic period. It does not guarantee a job nor that they will be able to earn the stated maximum.
  • Check the bulletin board at the Financial Aid and Student Employment Office for openings. Inquire at campus offices about upcoming jobs.
  • Remember: A neat and complete application makes the best first impression on prospective employers.
