Summer Federal Work-Study Program allows students to earn funding toward educational expenses for the upcoming academic year. Students interested in working during the Summer semester should email us at firstname.lastname@example.org around mid-April.
Students who have secured an approved Federal Workstudy position can email us to request to be reviewed for the workstudy grant. Please review the eligibility requirements below.
- Student must have a valid FAFSA on file for the current year and the upcoming academic year (2020-2021 & 2021-2022)
- Student must also have submitted all Financial Aid requirements for 2021-2022. You can locate this in the Cost & Aid tab of TUPortal.
- Student must qualify for Title IV Aid.
- Student must have unmet financial need- This is determined by the FAFSA Application(s) on file.
- Student must be either enrolled for Summer Session or pre-registered for the upcoming Fall 2021 term.
- Students enrolled in Summer session must submit the FWSENR form located in the forms section.
- Summer 2021 Federal Work-study awards are posted on Summer 1. We then run a process to carry forward any unused Summer 1 funding over to Summer 2 for students that qualify. We do not carry forward balances from Fall or Spring over to summer.
- Student Financial Services will determine a student’s eligibility for a summer Federal Work Study award based on 2020-2021 & 2021-2022 FAFSA (s), summer registration eligibility and the upcoming fall pre-registration. Amounts awarded are determined based on available funding and unmet financial need as determined by the FAFSA.
- Students enrolled in courses for the Summer I or Summer II sessions must complete and submit the Summer Federal Work Study Request Form to SFS. That form is located at: SFS forms
- Students that are not enrolled during the summer session(s), but are pre-registered for the upcoming fall semester are required to adhere to the federal regulation that governs FWS. The regulation requires a portion of summer earnings be used to meet educational expenses during the upcoming academic year. These attributed earnings are considered a resource offsetting calculated need for the upcoming FAFSA award year.
