Federal and state work-study programs offer students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience while earning money for college. Both on-campus and off-campus positions are available.

Students receive their work-study funds in the form of a paycheck from the employer based on their hourly wage and the number of hours worked in any given pay period. Because work-study funds must be earned, they are not available at the beginning of the quarter to help students pay their tuition and fees or purchase their books.
