Work Study

The Federal and State College Work Study Programs provide on-campus, part-time employment for U.S. citizens, permanent residents and certain other non-citizens who are enrolled and have a demonstrated financial need.

The maximum amount a recipient may earn under this program is determined through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students employed under this program are paid at least minimum wage and may work up to a set maximum number of hours per week (depending upon work study funding, financial aid award and class schedule). Federal and State Work Study funds are distributed on a monthly payroll basis.

It is the responsibility of the student to notify his/her employer of the work study award. Students may visit the Student Financial Aid Office to verify eligibility. Supervisors and students are encouraged to work together to monitor earnings and avoid exceeding the award.

To Determine Eligibility:

  • You must have financial need as determined by the FAFSA.
  • You must be enrolled in a minimum of one payable 3-credit hour class, not only foundational hours.
  • You must be maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress.

How to Apply:

  1. Complete the 2019-20 (Fall 2019, Spring & Summer 2020) Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine your eligibility into the Federal and State Work Study program. 
  2. Complete an Employment Application. When completing the application please enter the Weatherford College site (Weatherford, Granbury, Wise County, Mineral Wells) of where you would like to work in the “Employment Information” along with any other information you would like considered.
  3. Contact any of the supervisors with job openings to schedule an interview. Once you have accepted a position, the supervisor needs to email Mrs. Hukill with your name and Student ID #. Keep an eye on your student email for further instructions if you are eligible.

Once You are Hired:

  1. You will be sent an email containing the Criminal Background Release Form that you will need to sign and return to the Financial Aid Office or to the Human Resources Department.
  2. After a clear background is received, you will be sent an email with instructions to access the required online Work Study Orientation.
  3. Once you have completed the orientation, you will be sent an email with a Work Study Approval form and a New Hire Package to complete and to take to Human Resources. After you have the Work Study Approval Form signed by Human Resources, you will return it to the Financial Aid Office for the next step, before taking it to your supervisor. Only after a completed Work Study Approval Form has all signatures will you be cleared to begin working.
  4. Returning work study students should notify their supervisor of their continued interest in the work study program.
  5. For more information on work study, please contact the Financial Aid Office or email Rayanne Hukill at rhukill@wc.edu
