Federal work-study is a Federal Grant that allows students to earn funding via a bi-weekly paycheck to help cover non-billable educational expenses. Federal work-study funding does not get applied towards tuition and fees. Students must work an approved work-study position to earn the funding. To qualify students must have a valid FAFSA on file and qualify for Title IV Federal Aid. Students must also demonstrate unmet financial need as defined by the FAFSA application. Work-study is packaged on a student's financial aid offer. You can view this via the Cost & Aid tab of TUPortal. Federal work-study offers must be accepted by students via TUPortal- Cost & Aid tab.
Fall 2021 Work-study Employment runs from 8/14/2021 through 12/15/2021 ( Last Day of Finals)
