What is Work-Study?
The federal work-study program helps students pay for college expenses through self-help.

The conditions for eligibility include financial need, enrollment in at least 6 credits, citizenship or permanent residency, and satisfactory academic progress towards an eligible degree program. Please contact the Student Financial Services Office to speak with a Financial Aid Officer if you have completed the FAFSA and are unsure if you are eligible for work-study.
