Work Study

The Federal College Work-Study Program (FCWSP) is an employment program that provides on and off campus work experience opportunities for students while gaining an education. The FCWSP is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on your financial need. The average Work-Study award is $2100 per year (fall-spring). Funding for FCWSP is awarded at the beginning of the school year to eligible students until the funds are exhausted.

Awarding Work-Study and Eligibility Requirements:

If you are interested in applying for the work study program you must complete the Free Application for Financial Student Aid (FAFSA).

To be awarded FCWSP you must show financial need. All eligibility for the FCWSP Program is based upon your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is determined from the submitted FAFSA. You will be notified of your eligibility for FCWSP in the Financial Aid Award Letter that is mailed to you at the beginning of the school year.


SWTJC school code: 003614

Work-Study Rules and Restrictions:

  • Federal Work-Study students' work hours are limited to a maximum of 12 hours per week.
  • A student cannot earn more than the amount of his or her award.
  • A student must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward a degree in order to be eligible for financial aid.
  • Students must be enrolled for 6 credits or more per term to be eligible for FCWSP.
  • Work-Study awards are subject to change or cancellation. Violations of any work-study rules or changes in any aspect of a student's financial aid file may result in reduction or loss of that student's award.

Locating and being hired for a job:

The available work-study job positions are listed below. Contact the supervisor listed for the position you are interested in. You can choose to interview for several positions, but you should only accept one FCWSP job. Once you have received notification that you have been hired, your supervisor will provide you with forms that will need to be completed prior to your first day of work.

Once you are hired there are several compliance requirements:

  • Your supervisor will be able to provide you with an Authorization Form.
  • You must sign and date your Authorization Form and have your supervisor sign and date it.
  • Your supervisor must also enter the name of the department and account number.
  • The Authorization Form will need to be submitted to the Payroll Office prior to your first day of employment. The payroll department will supply you with W-4 and I-9 forms. These documents along with acceptable forms of identification must be completed prior to receiving your first timesheet.

Pay Scale:

FCWSP is a yearly award and divided equally into two separate amounts per semester (Fall and Spring). Currently, the minimum wage for Federal College Work-Study Program is $7.25 per hour. Students are paid monthly and paychecks may be picked up at the Payroll Office.

It is the responsibility of the student and the department to monitor the amount of earnings received by the student. The student employment and payment may not exceed the yearly award.
