Per University Policy 05.001, departments are encouraged to provide eligible students the opportunity to earn money for education expenses by hiring them in college work-study (CWS) positions. A CWS position is funded in whole or part by federal or state funds based on a student's financial need. Student eligibility to receive a CWS offer is determined by financial need. Review College Work-Study Reference Manual to find out more about the CWS Program. If you have any questions or want to request an overview, please email us.
