The Federal Work-Study employment program gives students the opportunity to earn money during the school year. The amount of the award represents the maximum that a student may earn. Students are paid bi-weekly and usually earn minimum wage.
If your award letter contains a Federal Work-Study (FWS) Award, a Federal Work Study Information Sheet will be mailed to you. Please read the information sheet carefully and look for a job that is compatible with your work experience and your class schedule. These funds cannot be used to defer charges.
Note: Financial aid awards are contingent upon the college receiving adequate federal funds to support these programs. In the event of any changes, you will be notified. State and federal budget discussions may lead to changes in funding levels, cost increases or regulatory changes.
In addition to the Federal Work-Study Program, the SUNY Oneonta Career Development Center provides students access to part-time employment information both on and off-campus through its Student Employment Service. The Career Development office is located in the Netzer Administration Building, Room 110.
