Federal Work-Study Campus Employment

Overview and guidelines

This program provides part-time jobs for eligible undergraduate students and is administered in accordance with federal and state laws and regulations. Work-study students have an opportunity to work on campus to help pay for educational related expenses. Work-study is a great way to build a resume and recommendation/references, and to gain valuable work experience while contributing to Curry College's operations, student life, and the campus community.

If you have a Work-Study Award included on your Financial Aid Award Letter from Curry College issued by Student Financial Services then you are eligible for Work-Study positions. For information on how to apply for this type of financial aid contact Curry College's Student Financial Services.
