Federal Work-Study is a need-based program designed to create part-time employment opportunities for eligible students.
Work-Study funding is awarded as part of a student's Financial Aid package. Students search and apply for work-study positions and if hired, earn up to the amount offered for the year through bi-weekly paychecks based on the hours they work.
The first step to applying for a work-study job is to review the list of available positions (see below). When you find a position you are eligible to apply for, you should contact the individual listed in the posting to set-up an interview.
Work-Study supervisors will make final determinations regarding the hiring of students. If you are offered a position, you will need to do the following:
- If you have not previously worked at Drexel, complete the New Hire Paperwork and bring it, along with proper identification, to the Human Resources Department, located at 3201 Arch Street.
- Follow the procedure of the department where you are working to submit your hours for receipt of a paycheck.
- Monitor your work hours in DrexelOne to ensure you do not exceed your work-study award.
