Federal Work-Study Program

Federal Work Study (FWS) is one of several federal student aid programs offered through the Financial Aid Office. FWS is a
need-based federally funded part-time employment program, which allows eligible students to earn money to help pay for education expenses. In addition to providing financial assistance, FWS also helps students gain valuable work experience while pursuing a college education. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year to be considered for federal student aid, including FWS funding.

Where Will I Work?

There are a variety of on-campus jobs available through the FWS Program. College offices and departments hire students to provide services such as clerical support, reception, lab assistance, childcare, food service, cashiering, and peer advising.

Am I Guaranteed A Position?

Obtaining a FWS position can be a very competitive process. Applicants are considered for positions based on their level of skill and their abilities to perform the required job duties. Also, due to a limited number of available positions throughout the campus, not all students who are eligible for a FWS award will be able to secure employment in the program.

What FWS Jobs Are Available?

Job openings for the FWS program can be viewed online with other on- and off-campus positions in Chaffey Connect. Before applying for open positions you should first confirm your eligibility for a FWS award with the Financial Aid Office.
