Federal and State College Work-Study programs permit undergraduate and graduate students to earn up to $6,090 annually on the basis of documented financial need. Students must provide proof of eligibility to work in the United States (see Student Employment Program below). All student employees are paid monthly on the first working day of each month for hours worked in designated on-campus and off-campus jobs. Payment is based on actual hours worked at a Work-Study eligible job. Your wages for hours worked during a semester cannot exceed the awarded amount. If you are awarded Work-Study but fail to locate a Work-Study job, you will not receive payment of the Work-Study award. In some cases, you may be eligible to increase your student loans if a Work-Study position is not available.
Contact TWU’s Career Connections Center for available Work-Study positions.
Students may work on campus as student assistants under the Student Employment Program. This program is coordinated through the Office of Human Resources. Employment on the Dallas or Houston campuses is coordinated by the Financial Aid Counselor located on those campuses.
