College Work Study Jobs
College Work-Study is a need-based program that is awarded to eligible students who indicated an interest in the program on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Work-Study funds are limited, and are awarded to students on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Federal College Work Study provides jobs to students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay for education expenses. Students who are eligible for College Work-Study can earn up to the amount listed on their award letter or until Western’s total College Work-Study allocation is exhausted.
College Work Study students are paid on a semi-monthly basis (around the 10th and 26th of each month), based on the number of hours worked. College Work Study money is earned and paid to the student, and is not deducted from the student’s Western account.
Work-Study students must have a minimum of six credits, during the academic year, to qualify to work under this program. Positions are available at on-campus and off-campus sites.
Fall & Spring:
Fall and Spring Work-Study students can work 10 hours per week with compensation of $8.00/hour.
Summer Work-Study students can begin work on July 1st and can work up to 30 hours per week. Summer 2013 Work-Study awards are available to students who will be attending the 2013-2014 academic year. A 2013/14 FAFSA must be completed prior to Summer 2013 for Summer work awards. Students enrolled in Summer credit classes are NOT eligible to work under the Summer Work-Study program.
When a student is awarded College Work-Study and accepts their award via their MyWestern portal, a questionnaire will be emailed to the student for completion. Once completed and returned to Heather Marx, a Work Study Supervisor will contact the student to set up an interview.
If hired, students will need to meet with Heather Marx. Her office is located in the Administrative Building on the corner of 7th and Main Streets. Students will need to show two forms of identification.
Further questions about College Work-Study may be addressed to the Work-Study Coordinator Heather Marx at 608-785-9594 or email@example.com.
