Financial Aid Options

Undergraduate Student Work Study

Federal Work Study 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. Funds are not applied directly to your tuition bill unless you elect to do so.

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.
