College Work Study

1. Am I eligible for College Work-Study?

For College work-study (CWS) awards, first make sure your FAFSA is on file with our office by the March 15 priority deadline, and indicate on your FASFA that you are interested in work study. If you are not initially awarded CWS, contact our office and ask to be put on the waiting list. CWS funds are awarded on a first come, first serve basis, and there is no guarantee that you will receive a CWS award.

2. How do I get a College Work-Study position?

After you have been awarded work-study, you will receive an email to schedule a Work-Study Orientation session. At the Work-Study Orientation you will complete the Human Resources hiring paperwork and also apply for open work-study positions. Once you are hired, you will need to take two forms of ID (driver’s license and social security card) to the Human Resources Office (Bayou 2537) to receive I-9 clearance.

3. How many hours am I permitted to work as a College Work-Study student?

You can't work more than 20 hours per week. Some positions will require 20 hours per week while others may be less. CWS students generally find that the flexibility of their schedules is a perk of participating in the program.

4. When is my time sheet due?

Complete your time sheets every Tuesday morning, as they are due to the Office of Student Financial Aid on Tuesday by 3:30pm.
