Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study provides part-time jobs on campus for students who have financial need & qualify for the Federal Pell Grant. The intention of this grant is to assist students who must earn a portion of their educational expenses. Students must be enrolled at least half time and may work 5-20 hours per week for $8.00/hr. A student can not participate in the Federal Work Study Program if they are on a Financial Aid Warning or Probation status, or if they have already participated in the program for four (4) semesters.

Federal Work Study is limited funding that is awarded on a first come first served basis. Students who are initially awarded are those who submit and complete their FAFSA earliest, and indicate their interest in the Federal Work Study program when asked on the FAFSA. Students are made the offer within their Financial Aid Award Notification, and accept the offer during the specified time line by submitting the Federal Work Study packet. As students decline or drop out of the program space becomes available again. When this occurs, the Financial Aid Office will post an announcement stating so in the Columbia College Monthly Student Bulletin. You may, in the mean time, fill out a Federal Work Study Packet and we will review it when positions become available.

Below is the list of campus job opportunities through the Federal Work Study Program. If you are made an offer, you will choose three (3) positions that fit your schedule and skill set. The Financial Aid Office will consider your input while making the placements.
