Federal Work-Study Positions
The Federal Work-Study program allows students to earn a paycheck by working a part-time job on or off campus and gain valuable experience. Money received from federal work-study does not count as income on the FAFSA. Students must be enrolled in at least 6 units (half-time) to be considered and it is awarded based on financial need. A student must complete the FAFSA, indicate they are interested in federal work-study, and complete their financial aid file by May 29th. Eligible students will be notified via myGateway.
This program is handled through the Financial Aid Office. For students interested in learning more about their eligibility to participate in federal work-study positions, and to get a list of federal work-study only openings, please contact Fullerton College’s Financial Aid Office (714) 364-0586.
