Federal Work-Study program is designed to encourage students to contribute to their educational expenses while decreasing their debt burden. If you wish to have your eligibility reviewed for this award, please contact the Department where you wish to work and they will follow procedures to determine whether you are eligible. Priority is given to students with the lowest EFC such as Pell eligible students, determined by information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) , who also receive Federal Pell Grants. There is no guarantee that every eligible student will receive or renew a work-study award, so it is important to apply early to have a better chance of receiving a job. Work-Study awards are based on the availability of funds at Oakwood University. More information is available at Student Employment.
Institutional Work-Study is an agreement between the Institution and the Students to have their pay credited to their Oakwood University student account until they are 100% clear financially, at which time their pay will be deposited in their personal bank accounts. More information is available at Student Employment.
