Federal Work Study (FWS)
Federal Work Study (FWS) is a job program that provides part-time jobs to eligible students either on or off campus. Students must be awarded a FWS job by the Office of Financial Aid to participate in this program.
The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) is a "need based" part-time work program which allows students to earn money to help pay educational expenses. Students must indicate on their FAFSA that they are interested in FWS in order to be considered. The amount shown on the student's PAWS account is the maximum amount available to earn on the FWS program. FWS will not be available at registration for the payment of fees. FWS student employees will be paid twice per month. The maximum award allows student employees to work up to 20 hours per week.
