Financial Aid

Work Study Program

students through work-study programs. Students are evaluated on the basis of:

  •  Financial need
  • Satisfactory academic progress
  • Seniority
  • Coincidence of student’s hours with respective departmental needs

Only students who have completed the first semester of their studies are eligible.
Successful candidates will earn 40% of their semester tuition fees through completion of a 20- hour weekly work schedule during the 15-week semester. When a work-study recipient has completed an excess of the number of hours required in the program, contingent to the needs of the department and upon special permission of his or her academic advisor and the Financial Assistance Officer, he/she is entitled to a greater percentage than 40% of their semester tuition. The proportionate percentage will be determined by the excess numbers worked. A Work-Hour Check-In list will be developed to this effect and submitted to the Office of Student Accounts for follow-up.

How to Apply

To receive priority consideration, students interested in applying for a work-study program must submit an application at the beginning of each semester. The application should be given to the Admissions Office no later than 15 days after the start of classes. A continuing student is eligible to reapply if he/she has a cumulative GPA of at least 2.21.

Continuance of financial assistance through the work-study program is dependent upon completion and submission of a renewal application at the beginning of each semester. Inquiries can be made at the Admissions Office for further information and for work-study application forms.
