Student Employment and Work-Study

Student Employment and Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study Program is awarded to students as part of their financial aid package. This program allows students to obtain a part-time job on campus and earn a biweekly paycheck for time worked. The current pay rate for Federal Work-Study students is $9.50 per hour. Students are able to earn up to the amount of their award. In order for students to be considered for the Federal Work-Study Program, the student must complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and answer yes to the work study question.    

The Federal Work-Study job listing and application are at https://psu.jobs by selecting Work-Study Jobs (small blue print below the job search boxes).

Important: If you are not hired by the end of the second week of fall semester, your fall/spring award will be cancelled.
