Federal Work-Study Program
The Federal Work-Study Program provides jobs for undergraduates with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to your course of study.
If you have unmet financial need and are enrolled for at least six credit hours, you may apply for employment on campus through the Federal Work-Study program. You may obtain an application from the Financial Aid Office. (2 forms of ID are required when you turn in your application)
You must first complete the FAFSA and all steps required for eligibility of aid at North Central State College.
Federal Work-Study is a need based program. Not every student is eligible.
A limited number of Work-Study positions are available on campus. Obtaining a position is a competitive process, much like any job search process. Contact the Career Resources Center (room 102 Kee Hall) for resume writing, job search, and interview tips.
