Work-Study Program


The Federal work-study program is a source of financial aid that is awarded by the Financial Aid Office and is based upon unmet financial need and availability of funding. 

If you have work-study listed as part of your financial aid package, you are eligible to apply for a part-time on-campus job available in numerous departments across campus.

Working Hours Allowed

All undergraduate work-study students have been authorized to work up to eight hours per week for 14 weeks each semester.

Award / Earned Pay

You will earn your award in the form of a bi-weekly pay check, be paid for hours worked, and may spend the money as you see fit, whether that be for incidentals, books, fees, etc.

All awardees must apply for work-study positions through HuskyJOBS by uploading your resume and applying for the positions of your choice.

Review the work-study program student guidelines for more information and detailed instructions for an easy and efficient process.

If you have not been awarded work-study, because you may be ineligible or funding has been exhausted, you are encouraged to seek alternative on-campus or community employment.
