Federal Work Study
The Federal Work Study program provides jobs for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service and employment related to your course of study. Students are not placed in jobs by the Office of Student Financial Planning. It is the student's responsibility to find a job on campus. Students must complete all required tax paperwork before beginning employment on campus. Required forms can be obtained directly from the Office of Student Financial Planning.
Federal Work Study funds are not deducted from the student's tuition bill. Work Study earnings are paid to the student at the end of each month. Student workers earn at least the current minimum wage and are paid monthly, with the first payroll on or around October 15.
Institutional Work Study
Students who do not qualify for Federal Work Study may still obtain employment on campus under Wingate's Institutional Work Study Program. Institutional Work Study students will also earn at least the current minimum wage and will receive a monthly paycheck.
