Work Study

Federal & State College Work Study Program

The College participates in the federally and state funded College Work Study (FCWS) and Michigan Work Study (MWS) Programs. Students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and meet all other requirements included in the Financial Aid Eligibility section. Employment extends to most areas of college activity. Every effort is made to refer students to positions compatible with their interests and qualifications, although such opportunities are not always available. Pay rates are commensurate with federal minimum wage guidelines. Jobs for all student employees are obtained through the Employment Services Office.

Once students have earned the amount for which they are eligible, they will be terminated from the program and will be unable to continue College Work Study employment.

How to Apply for Work Study

1.)  Visit the Applying for Financial Aid page and navigate through the links to complete the necessary steps which include filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the verification process.

2.) Once this is completed the student must fill out a Work Study Student Assistant application available on the Financial Aid Forms page.
