The Off Campus Federal Work-Study (OCFWS) program enables eligible undergraduate federal work-study award recipients to hold paid community service* jobs. Positions are available during the academic year and summer months (July and August). Students must be in good academic standing to participate in the Off Campus Federal Work-Study program. If your academic status for the 2013-2014 academic year is in question, you may not be eligible for summer funding. If you have questions about your academic standing, please contact the Office of the Dean of the College.
Funds for this program are limited, and applications for off campus work-study will be selected by a committee through a competitive process. Not all proposals will be approved for off-campus work.
*Through OCFWS, community agencies are able to hire students at a reduced cost. Please see eligibility for more information.
Off Campus Work Study positions are available, through an application process, to many students receiving financial aid. If you are not sure of your eligibility and have not been notified about OFWS work opportunities, please contact the Student Employment Office. The Swearer Center works to ensure that opportunities for service under the OCWS program meet the intention and criteria of the program overall, but the Swearer Center does not make determination of financial eligibility.
Funding cycles for the OCWS begin each year during the summer. Students in good standing are eligible to apply in April for summer work, and applications for the academic year are generally posted here in September.
Applications for Summer 2013 will be approved on a rolling basis; students are encouraged to apply early, but no later than April 30. After that time, applications will be considered as long as funding permits. We will notify students on or by May 10.
