Federal Work Study (FWS)


This program allows students to work on campus and earn funds to help meet educational costs. Students can earn up to the amount shown on the award notification. Students are paid in a biweekly paycheck for hours actually worked. Minimum enrollment is six credit hours per semester.


If you are awarded FWS and wish to apply for a job, you will need to obtain and complete a work study application from the Financial Aid Office.


A job is not guaranteed, and you are not guaranteed to earn your entire award. You may contact the Financial Aid Office at 309.341.5283 or Stephanie Ackermann at 309.341.5311, sackermann@sandburg.edu for more information.
