Federal Work-study/on-campus Employment
Federal Work-study Program
A federally funded work opportunity offered to students who demonstrate financial need according to the FAFSA. The average job represents seven hours of work per week at the current minimum wage for academic year earnings of $1,525. Unlike most other types of aid, work-study earnings are not automatically applied as payment toward the student’s semester bill. Students electronically record their hours worked every two weeks and are paid the following week. Students may authorize that their earnings be directly deposited into a personal bank account or to apply toward an unpaid balance in their UE student account.
New students offered on-campus employment will receive an application with their Financial Aid Notification letter. Detailed instructions and payroll forms will be mailed to new students in the summer prior to the freshman year.

All of the information above also applies to UE work-study employment. However, this program is completely funded by UE resources. If you are not offered on-campus employment as part of your financial aid award but would like to apply, you may complete a work application in the Office of Financial Aid the first week of classes. Interested students should also contact the Center for Career Development for referral to off-campus employment opportunities.
