Federal Work Study Student Employment Program

The Federal Work-Study Program is a federally funded, campus-based aid program designed to provide part-time jobs for eligible students with financial need. Students are paid at least minimum wage, but some positions pay more. Students work around their class schedules.

To participate in the Federal Work Study Program students must:

  • Be enrolled at least 6 credit hours each semester they are employed. Students may not exceed their award amount and work hours may not exceed 30 hours per week.
  • Have a grade point average of 2.25.
  • Demonstrate financial need.
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) no later than March 1 each year.

The Office of Student Financial Aid & Student Employment will send an award notification to eligible students.

We make every reasonable effort to help awarded students find a Federal Work Study position; however, students are not guaranteed employment.

Earnings received from the Federal Work Study Program are considered taxable income; however, they are excluded from consideration as income on the FAFSA for the following year.

Students receive a paycheck biweekly for hours worked. Since this money is earned through employment, any fees owed The University of Akron are not deducted from wages earned.
