Federal Work-Study Program (FWSP) - This program is federally funded and is available to qualified students who demonstrate financial need and are enrolled in at least half time financial aid eligible credit hours. Students are employed on campus approximately 15 hours per week at minimum wage and are paid monthly. It is the student's responsibility to find his/her position once he/she has received notice of eligibility. Funds for this program are limited. A few FWSP community service opportunities are available through our office.

University Aid - Many JSU students work part-time on campus in a variety of departments. These positions do not come through our office and do not require a financial aid application. Once a student is hired, they must sign the University Aid Contract with the hiring department.
