Federal Work Study

The Federal Work Study program allows students to develop valuable workplace experience and earn money toward educational expenses during the academic year. Eligible students who participate may find employment on campus in one of Indiana Tech’s offices or off campus through our employment partners.

To qualify for the Federal Work Study program, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a completed FAFSA on file that indicates your interest in work study.
  • Demonstrate financial need, as determine on your FAFSA.
  • Maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA.

Once you have been notified that you are receiving Federal Work Study funds, you must work with the Career Center to obtain your Orange Card and apply for available student worker positions.

For more information on this process, please visit the Career Center’s student employment page.

If you have received Federal Work Study funds, you must start working by October in order to maintain your eligibility. Failure to begin by October results in the loss of Federal Work Study funds.
