Federal Work Study
The Federal Work Study program is a need-based program that provides employment opportunities to eligible students. It is not a grant program; students are only paid for hours worked. Every two weeks students are mailed paychecks by the Business Office for the hours that they have worked, as verified by the student’s assigned supervisor.
Federal Work Study wages are subject to the same federal, state and local income taxes as any other earned income. Wages earned under this program must be included as taxable income on the student’s federal and state income tax returns. A W-2 form is mailed to each student’s permanent home address at the end of each tax year.
Federal Work Study funding is extremely limited; students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year. Awarding decisions will be made by the Financial Aid Office on the basis of available funding.
