CCSJ Federal Work Study Program

The Federal Work Study Program is a campus-based program with a limited allocation that provides paid jobs for eligible students. An estimated Federal Work Study award amount will be listed on your CCSJ financial aid award letter if you indicated interest in this program on the current year FAFSA and have demonstrated financial need/eligibility based on your FAFSA. Students who have work study listed on their award letter but who are unable to be placed in a work study position, can cancel it & possibly increase their loans. Currently, all work-study positions available through CCSJ pay $8.00 per hour.

All openings for Federal Work Study positions are available by visiting the Office of Financial Aid. If you would like to be considered for an available position, complete a CCSJ Student Employment Application and submit this to the CCSJ Office of Financial Aid. If you are offered a Federal Work Study position, you will need to complete both the forms W-4 and I-9 (Form W-4 & Form I-9 downloads). A work study contract will then be created for you by the Financial Aid Specialist.
