Work-Study Program


Finding a Federal Work-Study Job

The Federal Work-Study Program is a federally funded program for students who need financial assistance to help with educational expenses. The program provides a maximum of 14 hours of work per week when classes are in session and up to 28 hours of work per week during vacations.

To apply for the Federal Work-Study Program:

To find a job on campus:

1. Verify that you have a federal Work-Study award on your financial aid award letter.

If you do not have an award letter or would like Work-Study added to an existing award, please e-mail, go to SC 206 on the West Windsor Campus, or call the Financial Aid office at 609-586-4800 ext. 3210.

2. Lists of available jobs are available at the Career Services offices on both the West Windsor and James Kerney campuses.

If an on-campus department/community service agency that is not on this list wants to hire you, please come to Career Services or contact the Work-Study Coordinator at (609)570-3304 to discuss it.

3. If a department chooses to hire you, come to Career Services or contact the Work-Study Coordinator at (609)570-3304 for the three payroll forms (Work-Study Employment Form, I-9 and W-4).

Pay rates:

A schedule of pay dates and payroll deadlines is available in the Accounting Office (AD 131) on the West Windsor Campus.
