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 hours per week) employment for eligible students. The average wage for the FWS/TWS positions is $7.70 per hour. To be considered, students should indicate their interest in work-study employment on the financial aid application they submit each year. The number of available positions is limited by the amount of federal funding for this program. All students who are awarded Federal 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. Students who are offered a work-study award but are unable to secure a job may request a review of the financial aid package by the Financial Aid Office. In some cases, the Financial Aid Office may be able to replace the Federal Work-Study award with a Federal Direct Stafford Loan award.
El Centro 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.
El Centro College Financial Aid Office posts available work-study positions on the college's Web site. For more information about the hiring procedures, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
