What is Work Study?
Work Study is need-based financial aid programs that give students the opportunity to work part-time while going to school. Work Study students can therefore find jobs and may be able to keep their loan debt down by earning part of their aid eligibility, rather than borrowing more loans.
- Jobs may be located on or off campus with government agencies, non-profit organizations or private corporations.
- A student may work up to nineteen (19) hours per week while taking classes.
- Pay ranges are the same as non-Work Study student employment.
How to be Eligible for Work Study...
- Submit a FAFSA by the priority filing deadline. Be sure to indicate you are interested in work study.
- Eligible students will have a workstudy award included in their Award Letter.
If work study is not listed as an award on the letter, students are welcome to come in or call the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office to investigate their eligibility. You may also visit the UW Guide to Work Study for more information.
