Office of Student Financial Aid

Federal Work Study Program

The Federal Work-Study program is federally funded and designed to assist those students who demonstrate financial need. It provides the opportunity of employment to qualified students. Students must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid each year in order to be considered for Federal Work-Study.

Since Work-Study is a campus-based program, funding is very limited and this type of assistance usually goes to the earliest applicants with the highest need. Funds may become available throughout the year as students do not work their full amount of eligibility.

Many areas of our campus employ students through the Work-Study program. A list of these available positions can be found at the Career Services Office or accessed through their Web site at your UTportal and select Handshake or stop by Career Services. It is your responsibility to contact the department requesting an interview to be hired. Remember, you must have Work-Study eligibility in order to be hired into one of these positions.
