Federal Work Study Interest Form

The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) provides on-campus and near-campus employment opportunities for eligible students. The pay rate for the Work-Study Program varies from $12.00 per hour for on-campus employment to $15.00 per hour for off-campus tutoring. Students are limited to working no more than 20 hours per week.

In order for a student to be considered for the Federal Work-Study Program, they must meet the following criteria:

  1. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2021-2022 academic year to determine eligibility for the federal work-study program. Students must have financial needs as determined by the FAFSA.
  2. Must be enrolled in a Financial Aid eligible program of study (Certificate, Diploma or Associate Degree Program) according to Financial Aid guidelines.
  3. Meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress Guidelines for Federal Student Aid as defined in the College Catalog and Student Handbook. Students whose financial aid has been terminated are not eligible to participate in the Work-Study Program.

If you are interested in applying for a work-study position, please complete the Wake Tech Work-Study Application below. Please be advised that completing this application does not guarantee you a work-study position. Work-study positions are limited and based on available funding. Whenever possible, you are encouraged to select a position related to your course of study or tutoring off-campus.

You will receive an email with instructions at your Wake Tech email if you are eligible to participate in the FWS program. Once your eligibility for the work-study program is confirmed, you are required to complete the necessary Human Resources paperwork. If hired, you cannot begin work until you return the signed referral Work-Study Contract.
