Work Study is awarded to undergraduate and graduate students based on financial need and availability of funds. This program provides job opportunities for students to earn money to help offset educational expenses for the academic year. These funds are limited and it is strongly recommended that students meet the June 1st deadline to be considered. A variety of positions are available, including some involving community service and off campus sites.
The amount of the Work Study award is the maximum you may earn during the term(s) specified. The award is earned according to the number of hours you work successfully. Students are paid at the current federal minimum wage. Students are responsible for locating a job and completing the necessary payroll paperwork.Work Study Permits are e-mailed to the student's EagleMail student email account. http://www.csc.edu/hr/student/
The following chart displays the approximate Work Study hours per week/per award. Remember these amounts are only estimates. If you work more hours, your award will be expended sooner in the semester. You and your supervisor will need to monitor your remaining hours so that the Work Study award is not exceeded.
