The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program allows students the opportunity to work part-time, on and off campus. Students working with children or cash will be required to be fingerprinted at no charge to the student.
Students must maintain an enrollment in a minimum of six (6) units during the fall/spring to be eligible for FWS, and three (3) units during the summer/winter semesters. The last possible working date for the award year for FWS is June 30.
Students MUST STOP working under FWS when they drop below the required units, run out of funds, or reach June 30, whichever comes first.
Students must notify their supervisor, the Financial Aid Office (FAO), and Student Employment Services (SES) if they drop below the required units.
Please note: students may switch to regular student employment if they use their entire FWS award as long as the hiring supervisor approves the change. Students who work under regular student employment must be enrolled in at least 12 units.
Students wishing to work under FWS continuously through the next award year must renew their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the upcoming award year.
