About work-study:

  • The Work-Study program is an employment program offered through the government for students who qualify for financial aid.
  • Work-Study is not a guarantee of employment. It is the student's responsibility to find employment.
  • Work study is paid directly to the student in the form of a paycheck. It is not paid to the balance on the student account. Students who want work study to pay toward their account balance must make payments through the online Wildcat Pay system or through The Depot.
  • Satisfactory academic progress must be sustained by each student in order to maintain any financial aid program.
