Scholarship Opportunities

This is a federal financial aid program through which a full-time or part-time matriculated student who can demonstrate financial need is provided with a part-time job either on or off campus. Students are limited to working 20 hours a week while classes are in session, but they may work up to 35 hours a week during vacation periods with the permission of the Financial Aid office. The current hourly pay rate is $7.50 for undergraduate students and $9.00 for graduate students. This is determined by the Financial Aid office based on a combination of job location (on or off campus), job description, and the student’s year in college.
