Students are provided part-time jobs under the Federal Workstudy Program to help earn part of their college expenses. This program, like other Financial Aid Programs, is based on need. Students will be paid at the current rate of $7.25 per hour. Eligibility for this program takes into account your financial need, your class schedule, and academic progress. Award amount depends upon the number of hours employed and the current wage rate. To apply for workstudy, a student must have completed the FAFSA (http://www.fafsa.ed.gov), be eligible for aid, and complete an application for Workstudy. This application must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office.
