- Work Study Students are funded through the Federal Work Study (FWS) program. FWS is a federal financial assistance program that requires the student to file by completing the FAFSA form, meet specific eligibility requirements, and be awarded FWS funds by the Student Financial Assistance office. Due to having a limited amount of FWS funds, funds are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. A student employment award is NOT a guarantee of employment.
- Student Assistants are funded through the division budget of the hiring department. The hiring department authorizes student assistants to work an allocated amount of hours for the current academic year.
