Federal Work-Study

What is Federal Work-Study (FWS)?  Work-Study is a form of need-based financial aid that helps students pay for their educational expenses through part-time employment.

Am I eligible?  To determine eligibility, students are required to submit a FAFSA.  Students must also have a GPA of 2.0 or higher, unmet need, and meet Baker College’s Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements.

Benefits of Federal Work-Study:

  • Reduces or even eliminates the need for student loans — unlike a loan, Work-Study funds are not repaid and earned funds go directly to the student.
  • Work experience — many Work-Study jobs are office positions, which provide you with work experience you can include on a resume.
  • Advancement potential — a Work-Study position can help you develop the skills you need for a full-time position at Baker College or with another employer.
  • Flexible hours — many Work-Study positions have flexible hours and will work around your class schedule.

How do I apply?  To begin the process complete the Work-Study Application.  If you are eligible to participate, your application will be made available to a hiring manager.  We offer both on-campus and off-campus Work-Study positions.  Please review our job postings for current Work-Study opportunities.  New positions may become available throughout the academic year; continue to check the current job postings to find a position that may be of interest to you.  Note:  Students not interested in current Work-Study positions are welcome to submit an application; financial aid will maintain it for a 6 month period.
