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 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (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 campus 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.

Dallas College posts available work-study positions in various methods at the campus, including posting available positions online. For more information about the hiring procedures, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

The 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.
