There are two work study programs available to students:
1. Federal Work-Study
Students participating in the federal work-study program work part-time (not more than 20 hours per week) to help meet their educational costs. Work-study jobs are available at a variety of on-campus and some off-campus locations.
Eligibility: Students must be eligible for a PELL grant and demonstrate the need for additional funds to meet the cost of education. They must also comply with the college's financial aid satisfactory academic progress policy.
