Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study is a work program for students with financial need. As a work study employee you can gain work experience, insight into a career path or job field, money to help with college expenses and the chance to create good references for future job searches.

To work on campus as a work study employee, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. You may be offered work study as part of your financial aid award; however, if it was not included, you may ask about your eligibility by visiting a campus Financial Aid & Scholarships Office.

As a work study employee, you may work up to 20 hours per week and earn at least minimum wage, up to the amount of your financial need. You may be employed on one of our campuses, or as a reading or math tutor in a local public school.

If federal work study has been included in your award package and you would like to apply for an open position, please visit TCC’s employment website. For help with the employment application process including resume writing and interviewing skills, please contact Career Services.
