Types of Aid: Work Study

Federal Work-Study is a need-based program that must be applied for by completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. If you did not see an offer for Federal Work-Study on your award notification then either you were not eligible, or funds were not available at the time that you were awarded. Please review all the links below for information on Federal Work Study at FSU. Work Authorization/Payroll papers must be completed before a student can start work and must be turned in no later than September 6, 2013.

Application Procedures:

For Fall 2014/Spring 2015 work study - complete the 2014/2015 FAFSA / Renewal FAFSA - Applications must be submitted between January 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015. Apply as soon as possible after January 1, 2014, as funds for work-study are very limited.
