Work Study Program
Federal Work Study
This is a federal work program for students with financial need. You may be employed on one of our campuses, or as a reading tutor in a local public school. As a work study employee, you may work up to 20 hours per week and earn at least minimum wage, up to the amount of your financial need. You may be offered work study as part of your overall award; however, if it was not included, you may inquire about your eligibility by visiting a campus Answer Center / First Stop Center.
How will I receive a job assignment?
Work study awards are part of your overall financial aid package. Instructions to apply for Work Study Jobs will be available on your Award Notice on Atlas. If selected for a position, your supervisor will have you meet with a Financial Aid Services Specialist to complete the remaining assignment documents. You will need to bring your Social Security Card and proof of citizenship or eligibility to work in the U.S. with you to your meeting so you can complete your payroll paperwork.
How will I receive payment for my Federal Work Study Award?
Federal Work Study is an opportunity to work and build work experience. You will be paid by Valencia’s Payroll Department every two weeks based on the time sheet you and your supervisor turn in to Financial Aid. You will receive a packet of information about this process when your assignment documents are completed.
Institutional Work Study
