Federal Work Study Program (FWS)
Campus Based Aid

The Federal Work-Study Program provides jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses.


Award: Based on unmet need and job availability


  • Unmet need
  • Enrolled at least half-time (6 hours)
  • Meeting SAP (Satisfactory Academic Progress)
  • Cannot exceed COA (Cost of Attendance)
  • Not in default of student loan or owe a federal repayment

The Federal Work Study Program provides funds that are earned through part-time employment to assist students in financing the costs of postsecondary education.

To qualify, students must:

Job placement is coordinated through the WSCC Financial Aid Office and is contingent on the availability of a position on campus. Please note that you may be required to go through an interview process and background check.

Community Service Opportunities

Positions are often available within the local community. If you are interested in one of these positions, please indicate on your work study application and contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.

Eligible students will be contacted by phone for a job placement interview as positions become available. Eligibility is based on a student's "unmet need". Unmet need is determined by subtracting the student's Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and financial aid awards from the college's established Cost of Attendance (COA). Thus, all other aid must be applied to the student's account before eligibility for the FWS program can be determined.

Generally, the process for placing eligible students will begin around the first part of September for the fall semester and the latter part of January for the spring semester.

Students are paid an hourly wage, and work approximately 10-20 hours per week. Currently students are paid on the last working day of the month for hours accumulated in the previous month. When practical, payment is direct deposited into either the student's checking or savings account.
