FEDERAL WORK STUDY (FWS): This is a need-based program and is available fall, winter and spring terms. Employment opportunities are available on and off campus. The student must be enrolled at least half time and may begin working only after FWS has been offered through an Award Letter and accepted by the student by completing the necessary paperwork on our Federal Work Study page. Students must apply early, demonstrate need, and request the offer of work study on the Financial Aid Information Request (FAIR) sent to them after their FAFSA is received. Additional steps are required to accept FWS if offered on an Award Letter.
