Work Study Program
The Federal Work Study (FWS) program is funded by the federal government and the University and is designed to provide jobs for eligible students who may earn funds to assist with a portion of their educational expenses. Eligible students are assigned part-time jobs on campus while school is in session. Every effort is made to place a student in a job that relates to previous experiences or to future career goals. Students may use all or part of their work study earnings to help pay their tuition and other eligible educational expenses.
Students receive biweekly paychecks for hours worked at the established wage, or they may choose to have their earnings applied directly to their student accounts by signing an authorization through the Business Office. Application for FWS is made through completion of the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov (Midway’s School Code: 001975) as soon as possible on or after October 1st, with an additional application required through the Office of Financial Aid.
