Federal Work Study Program

The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program provides part-time employment for students to help meet their educational expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student's course of study. Students are allowed to work an average of 15 to 20 hours per week. Student work hours are assigned according to the amount of the total FWS award, the student's class schedule and the student's academic progress. FWS positions can be on or off campus.

The total Federal Work-Study award depends on the time of application, the level of need and the availability of funds. Students will be paid by the hour. Hourly rates vary according to the position held. Federal Work-Study earnings are credited to their Higher One debit cards once a month.  It is the student's responsibility to update address information and to make debit card preference selections at www.mtcdebitcard.com .
