Federal Work-Study

Participation in the Department of Education's Federal Work-Study program allows for part-time jobs to students who have demonstrated financial need, as determined by their FAFSA results.  As with other grant programs, an awarded amount is established for each student.  This amount, along with class schedule and academic progress, will be factors in determining a work schedule. Students will be paid hourly and receive at least minimum wage.  Student workers are assigned to various jobs on campus with an attempt to place in a job that enhances the student's area of study.  IECC, like other participating institutions, receives a limited amount of funds for Work Study each year from the U.S. Department of Education.  For this reason, awards to students are on a first-come, first-serve basis.  

HOW TO APPLY
To apply for Federal Work-Study, the student must first complete the FAFSA (See Apply for Aid - FAFSA in the navigation menu on the left) and then indicate a desire for Work-Study on IECC's Data Sheet and Contract (available under Forms in the navigation menu on the left or in the college financial aid office.)  

REQUIREMENTS
See Financial Aid 101 in the navigation menu on the left to review general Title IV eligibility requirements.
