Federal Work Study Job Opportunities

The Federal Work Study Program allows students to seek on-campus employment and off campus community service opportunities. Students must be Federal Work Study eligible to be considered, and job opportunities will be dependent on job availability within campus departments.  Federal Work Study eligibility is determined by completing the FAFSA application. Students meeting the Federal need requirement (determined by the FAFSA), and maintain a g.p.a of 2.0 or higher may apply for available positions.  Federal Work Study funds are not considered scholarships or grants, and will not be applied to student accounts or reduce student bills.  Students are provided a biweekly paycheck which the Department of Education partially provides funding for.  This funding can then assist students in paying for their education.

The Federal Work Study program provides great opportunity for students to obtain on-the-job training and gain employment experience that many employers are looking for.  UNOH student workers are valuable assets to the UNOH community, and are able to gain knowledge and experience in different fields of work.  Students can view available job listings on their my.unoh.edu homepage in “Job Postings” under “Student Resources”.  Below are positions provided for student workers.
