What is Work Study?
Work Study is a program that provides part-time employment opportunities to eligible students to help meet the cost and expenses related to education. Based on the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), eligible students are awarded an allocation which may be earned through part-time employment in approved positions either on or off-campus. The program is designed to provide students with an opportunity for employment arranged around class schedules.
- Students must be enrolled as full-time traditional undergraduate students.
- Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Federal Work Study Funds (FWS) Funds are awarded based on financial need and on a first-come, first-served basis until all funds are exhausted. Students must demonstrate financial need to be eligible to participate in the FWS Program. King University funds are used for students who do not meet the requirements set forth by need.
- Students must be in good academic standing at King University and maintain satisfactory academic progress according to federal and institutional guidelines to maintain work positions.
