Determining Eligibility

In order to be considered for FWS, you must first complete your FAFSA for the aid year of consideration. Work-study funds are limited and are distributed on a first-come, first-serve, and highest-need basis. The filing date of the FAFSA and your calculated federal financial need are used when selecting students who will be offered a work-study allocation. Please be sure to answer “Yes” to Question 21 on the FAFSA: “Are you interested in being considered for work-study?”

Additional components of eligibility include, but are not limited to:

  • Enrollment Status
  • Academic Progress to Degree
  • Academic Standing

If you have not been offered an allocation and would like to be placed on the waitlist, you can inquire with
