WORK STUDY JOB OPPORTUNITIES LISTED BELOW

The purpose of the Federal Work-Study program is to stimulate and promote part-time employment, particularly for those with financial need.  You will also have an opportunity to participate in research protocols, tutoring, or other positions which will enhance your academic knowledge as you progress through your program.

Part-time positions available through the Federal Work-Study Program involve work at the University or in a public or private non-profit organization. Students may work no more than an 20 hours per week when classes are in session and students may not work during hours in which they have classes on their schedule.  You can earn up to the total amount listed on your financial aid award.

To work in the summer, you must complete all eligibility criteria for the next federal award year.

The minimum pay rate for Federal Work-Study positions at TUC is $15.00 per hour through 6/30/19 and will be $16.00 per hour beginning 7/1/19. Students are paid according to established payroll procedures.

We suggest that incoming, new students accept their work study award, but wait until at least their first exam results to sign up for specific work study positions. This helps ensure your academic foundation is strongly built and you can better determine how many hours per week you would be comfortable working without affecting your academic goals.
