Federal College Work Study (FCWS)


The FCWS program provides temporary part-time employment at 10-15 hours per week to eligible students. 
You must indicate "Are you interested in being considered for work study" on your FAFSA. Award amounts are based on unmet need calculated by the FAFSA. 
The actual amount earned depends on the number of hours worked and the current minimum wage. Funding is limited and awards are done on a first-come first-serve basis
First-come first-served awarding is based on the date your file is processed by our office, not the date you completed the FAFSA application. Complete your file with our office as soon as you receive email notification that our office has received​ your FAFSA.
You must be enrolled in at least 6 academic units to participate in the FCWS. After federal determination, if you appear eligible to receive Work Study funds it will be offered to you by the our office.
