Earn money while enrolled
The Federal Work Study program is a form of financial assistance that allows students to earn money through on-campus employment while they are enrolled. Work-study is an opportunity for professional development alongside additional aid options. The Federal Work Study program is not a traditional form of financial assistance because earned money goes directly to the student in the form of a paycheck. Learn more about the work-study process and how this aid works below:
The Federal Work Study program is different from other
types of aid such as scholarships or grants because:
Since there are fewer positions than eligible students, the college confirms work-study awards in the order that it receives deposits.
The college takes federal and state taxes out of wages earned and issues checks to students twice a month.
For more information regarding eligibility and wages please visit the Student Employment section of MyTFC or the Student Employment page.
