College Work-Study

The College Work-Study program allows students to work part-time in specified positions to earn up to $2500 per semester to help pay for educational expenses.

  • Indicate your preference for College Work-Study on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • Once you are awarded work-study by our office, go to the UNT Career Center to apply for available work-study jobs.
  • Wages vary depending on position. Check specific job listings to see how much they offer.
  • Students are paid at least the federal minimum wage.
  • Must be reported as earnings on your income tax return.
  • When completing the FAFSA for the following year, report your work-study earnings under the Additional Financial Information section. Work-study earnings are treated as financial aid rather than income when the Expected Family Contribution is calculated.
  • Work-study jobs are partially funded by the state or federal government.
