The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) and the Texas College Work-Study Program (TWS) are need-based financial aid programs that provide part-time (not to exceed 19.5 hours per week) employment for eligible students. The average wage for the FWS/TWS positions is $11.54 per hour. To be considered, students should indicate their interest in work-study employment on the financial aid application (FAFSA/TASFA) they submit each year. The number of available positions is limited by the amount of federal/state funding for these programs. All students who are awarded Federal/Texas Work-Study may not be able to find a job. Your college Financial Aid Office can provide assistance in locating available work-study positions on campus. In some cases, the Financial Aid Office may be able to replace the Federal Work-Study award with a Federal Direct Loan award.
Richland College posts available work-study positions in various methods at the college. For more information about the hiring procedures, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
Richland College also provides a limited number of part-time employment opportunities for students who do not demonstrate financial need. In some cases, the college may be able to help students find employment off-campus.
