You need to know . . .
Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submit a Work Study application to the Financial Aid office to be considered for this program.
Student award amounts are based on financial need and additional financial aid such as, scholarships, student loans and government funded programs will decrease the award amount.
The program runs July 1 - June 30 (just like the Pell Grant). To continue participating in the Work Study Program, students must re-apply each year.
