Federal Work-Study Program

Federal Work Study provides employment opportunities for students on the College campus and at a number of public schools throughout Onslow County. The completion of a FAFSA and an institutional Work Study Application are required for consideration. The availability of positions is based upon funding levels, student need levels, and interviews. Students will be paid an hourly wage for the number of hours worked per month during the semester. The student’s work schedule will be set by the student’s supervisor and will vary according to the student’s class schedule.

Job descriptions for each FWS position are available in the FWS Coordinator’s office. These job descriptions outline the job’s duties and responsibilities. A work-study job assignment should be treated like any other part-time job you may apply for. Supervisors look for work-study students who are dependable and responsible.
