Federal Work Study
Federal Work Study provides employment opportunities for students demonstrating financial need and is awarded as part of the student's Financial Aid package. Applications are made through the Financial Aid Office by completing a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form.
Once awarded, all work study placements are made by the Student Employment Office. Jobs throughout campus are allocated based on the recognized need for additional staff in those departments, and off-campus work study jobs must be with private non-profit organizations or public agencies.
Students' work hours are based on the total amount awarded, and the amount earned through work study cannot exceed the Federal Work Study Award. The Federal Work-Study wages can be used towards tuition, books, or any other necessities while attending Appalachian State University. We encourage you to consider employment as an option for financing your education.
