The Federal Work-Study Program provides part-time employment for students who need financial assistance to meet their educational expenses. To be eligible for employment under this federal program, a student must be enrolled in the University or fully accepted for admission and demonstrate financial need.
Students who are enrolled at least half-time work an average of 15 to 20 hours per week. During vacation periods it is sometimes possible to work up to 40 hours per week. Pay rates vary with the job assignment.
Finding the right Work-Study job takes a little effort but is not complicated. Available positions are posted on the job board at MySpartanJob.com.

Applying for Financial Aid
Students seeking any type of financial assistance should apply early for admission to the University, as students may not be awarded financial aid until they have been officially accepted by the University.
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which will determine the amount of assistance and which program is appropriate for you. You can obtain this application from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, your high school guidance counselor, or online.
