Student Employment

Work Study Information

The Financial Aid Office assists thousands of students to find Work-Study employment. You must qualify for need-based financial aid to be eligible for Work-Study. The Work-Study program subsidizes the employer by a percentage of a student's hourly wage. Work Study is like any other job; you work and receive a paycheck for your earnings from your employer. Work-Study students are generally in high demand so eligible students can often pick the job of their choice. There are more students eligible for Work-Study than there are available funds. A Work-Study job reduces your eligibility for other financial aid. CWU participates in the federal and state Work-Study programs.

If you are interested in Work-Study and you have "Need", please contact the Financial Aid Office.
