Federal Work Study
- Last Updated: 22 August 2014
Federal Work Study / Student Wage (FWS) positions usually become available at the end of the Spring semester or prior to the beginning of Fall semester. Visit this site frequently for current openings. Unless otherwise indicated there is one position per department.
Federal Work Study is a federally funded Title IV program. The purpose of the program is to help students, with a demonstrated financial need, contribute financially towards their college education, and to assist the College in performing duties that do not require full-time employees. These specific duties are to directly contribute to the operation of the College as a whole.
Federal guidelines also require the College to provide community service jobs through Coconino Community College. Community Service jobs supported by the College are required to primarily benefit the community as opposed to the school. According to the US Department of Education Handbook on Student Financial Aid, "On-Campus jobs can meet the definition of community services provided that the services are open and accessible to the community."
Students who desire to work on-campus as a Federal Work Study student may obtain an application for employment on-line or at the Office of Student Financial Aid, Lone Tree Campus. All employment is subject to a student's financial aid eligibility, availability of positions and available funding. Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress for the duration of their employment.
