Work-study Opportunities

The need-based Federal Work Study Program and the need-based State Work Study Program for Washington residents provide financial assistance to eligible students through part-time employment opportunities on and off campus. Students receive valuable experience and employers provide some scheduling flexibility to enable students to work while pursuing their course of study. It is the student’s responsibility to find work after being awarded.

For more information about the work study program, please visit the Work Study Program DefinitionWork Study Residency Classification Information and Rate of Pay and Benefits Paid to Work Study Students.

Current Work Study job opportunities are now posted in the Financial Aid Office and at College Central.


Once you’ve registered, select “Work Study” in the Job Types section, and all available positions will be displayed. The School ID field will indicate whether the job is through the Federal Work Study program (FWS) or the State Work Study program (SWS), which is exclusively for long-time residents of Washington. If you’re unsure of your award type, please refer to your most recent award letter or contact the Office of Financial Aid for assistance.

We encourage you to sign up on this specialized job site where you can search for work study positions, as well as non-WS jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities. If you’d like, you may even use this site to manage your resume and portfolio (add up to 15 portfolio pieces, an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) file and 2 animation files) and to polish your job search skills.
