The financial aid office determines the student’s eligibility for a federal work study award based on several criteria presented on the student’s FAFSA application. We do not interview students or collect references to determine the student’s hiring qualifications.
As a FWS Supervisor it’s important for you to know that students with Federal Work Study awards are not guaranteed automatic job placement. Rather, like any part-time employment, jobs are available to which the student worker submits an application. The FWS supervisor makes their own hiring decisions based on the student application and interview.
