What is Federal Work Study?

Federal Work Study (FWS) is a program funded by the U.S. Department of Education and awarded to students who demonstrate financial need. You will see an FWS allocation on your Financial Aid Award letter if you are eligible. It is then your responsibility to pursue a work position in which you can earn this award. Students reapply for FWS with the FAFSA Financial Aid Application process; renewal of this award is based on demonstrated financial need and availability of funds.

If I am not awarded FWS, can I still work on campus?

Yes. Although hiring priority is given to FWS recipients, Regis College funds a program known as the Institutional Employment Program. Students working through this program must wait until after October 1 to begin their job search. Once a position is secured, the Office of Financial Aid will award an allocation similar to the FWS award. The student is expected to plan their hours accordingly with this allocation.

Employment opportunities are posted outside of the Business Payroll Office in College Hall, Room 104. Hiring supervisors complete a job posting that includes job descriptions, duties, and particular skills and hours for a position. The student is responsible for determining which positions best suit his or her interest, skills, and personal schedule.
