Costs & Financial Aid
What is Federal Work Study?
Federal Work Study (FWS) is a program jointly funded by the U.S. Department of Education and Regis College and awarded to students who demonstrate financial need. If you have applied for financial aid and you are found to be eligible then you will see a Work Study allocation on your Financial Aid Award letter. It is then your responsibility to pursue a 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. Availability of jobs is not guaranteed and depends on departmental needs.
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 electronically posted. Please use your Regis College credentials to log onto https://dept.regiscollege.edu/oncampusjobs. 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.
Students must have a completed contract, I-9 and W-4 form before working any hours.
