Introduction: Federal Work-Study Program

The Federal Work-Study program provides employment opportunities to students who are enrolled in a degree program and have registered for at least 6 credits per semester. The Federal Work-Study program is administered by the Office of Student Financial Services.

There are specific rules for all Federal Work-Study positions, regardless of what position the student obtains. Students may work up to 20 hours per week throughout the academic year and a maximum of 35 hours per week during the summer and official breaks with funding permitted. Earnings from student jobs are not applied directly toward their tuition bill. Instead, students are paid biweekly in return for their work and determine how to best utilize these funds toward their educational expenses.

Students interested in obtaining part-time employment should be directed to the Job Listings book located in the Office of Student Financial Services. Contact information for the supervisor is provided in the Job Listings book. Students are to send a cover letter and resume directly to the hiring supervisor or hand deliver a resume to the department where they are interested in working. Once a position is obtained, the student must submit all required paperwork within 15 days of the award notification. The Office of Student Financial Services processes all of the payroll information and manages Federal Work-Study policies and procedures.

For information on student employment policies, please reference the Federal Work-Study Handbook or contact our office at 212.343-1234 ext. 5004, send an email to , or stop by our office at 12th Floor.
