SAINT FRANCIS UNIVERSITY
Work Study & Campus Employment
Working on Campus
Work-Study jobs are a great way to earn money to supplement or even take the place of loans, but there are a few things to keep in mind:
- Students must find their own jobs. No student is guaranteed a job.
- Employers are made aware of eligible students for FWS, and these students are to be given priority in the hiring process.
- A maximum of twenty hours (20) per week may be worked during enrollment periods.
- The current wage rate is $7.25/hour. Students are paid on a bi-weekly basis for the number of hours worked.
