How to Find Work Study Job

WHAT IS WORK STUDY?

Work-study is a type of financial aid where a percentage of your earned wages are supplemented by federal, state, or institutional funds. It can be need- or non-need based. Students must be enrolled in at least 6 credits in order to use their work-study award and may only have one work-study job at a time.

Not sure if you have a work-study award? Check your financial aid awards page on RAMweb. You can email proof of a work-study award to a potential employer from there as well.

If you are not initially offered work-study in your financial aid award, there is a Request Work-Study application that you can fill out. It opens on RAMweb each April for the upcoming academic year.
