- Demonstrate need to be eligible for work-study funds.
- Be paid at least federal minimum wage, but it is related to the type and difficulty of work that is done.
- Perform work-study employment anywhere from 6-8 hours per week.
*The number of hours worked weekly is determined by the amount of work-study dollars awarded and financial need.
Students can also learn about regular employment opportunities both on and off campus by online.
