Each year, the federal government helps fund work study or student employment jobs on campus and through service projects off campus. If you’re looking for more ways to pay for college, campus employment jobs can be a great way to help.

- The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program is a student employment program through which the federal government subsidizes earnings for hours worked in campus employment positions. It is a need-based program, meaning students must demonstrate a financial need on their FAFSA in order to work and earn FWS dollars that will assist in educational and living expenses while attending school. It is not an automatic financial award, but rather an opportunity to earn the award by taking the initiative to find a job on-campus and earn wages.
- Working an on-campus job (including Work Study) is real employment. Students earn minimum wage and are paid as they work. The IRS considers these wages earned income. Each student employee will receive a W-2 from payroll (annual statement). You must claim your earnings on your income tax return and your FAFSA application.
- You will need to bring two forms of identification: (one ID has to be photo verification and the other ID must be citizenship verification):
- Examples include: Valid Passport
- OR Driver’s license/State ID and Social Security card/birth certificate
- School ID and Social Security card/birth certificate
- Military ID and Social Security card/birth certificate
- All documents must be unexpired originals ~ no copies.
- The full list and explanation of the federal law regarding proper identification can be found at USCIS.GOV — I-9 Forms Verification.
If hired after the scheduled New Student Employee Orientation, visit the Human Resources office to complete employment verification/tax paperwork: I-9 & W-4s.
