Federal Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study Program provides students with the opportunity to work part-time and earn a bi-weekly paycheck.  Funds earned can be used to help pay education expenses. Work-study funds are not applied directly to the student’s bill.

  • To qualify, students must file the FAFSA (and answer YES to the Federal Work-Study  question on the FAFSA) and meet certain need-based criteria
  • The total amount of work-study awarded is what the student is eligible to earn for the academic year.  Work-study award amounts are listed as part of the financial aid award in MaineStreet.

For more information on Federal Work-Study, available jobs and the procedure for beginning work as well as for general assistance and guidance, please contact our office.
