Types Of Financial Aid
Student employment provides an opportunity to earn money to help pay educational costs. Students are paid an hourly wage, and time sheets are submitted twice a month. Paychecks are through electronic transfer on the 15th and last day of each month.
Student employment on campus can either be in positions funded through Federal Work Study (FWS) dollars or in positions funded through institutional dollars. If a student is eligible for Federal Work Study, the assistance is included in the Financial Aid Award Notice. Eligible students will receive a Student Employment Form. Federal Work Study is a campus-based program, and priority is given to students whose FAFSA is received by the Central Processor by April 15. Community service jobs such as reading tutors are available for students. Students who are not awarded FWS may apply for institutionally funded positions; information about institutional positions is available through the Office of Career Services.
