Undergraduate Student Work Study

Undergraduate Student Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study (FWS) is money you earn by working on campus part-time, while enrolled in school, that will help pay your educational expenses.

Wages are paid jointly by federal funds and the University. FWS earnings are not deducted from your tuition bill, unless you elect to do so. The amount you are paid from FWS is dependent upon how much you work. 

To determine if you qualify to participate in Federal Work Study, review your Financial Aid award letter in mySXU, under the Financial Aid heading in Self-Service.
