Federal Work-Study is a need-based financial aid award that requires a FAFSA application.
Undergraduate students are automatically reviewed for eligibility and if eligible, it will appear on your Financial Aid award letter/Self Service Banner.
Graduate students are not automatically reviewed and must request Work-Study by email to the Office of Financial Aid. Include your name, best way to contact you, date of birth, and Banner ID, if known. We will notify you by email of your eligibility.
