Federal Work Study

Guidelines

We’re glad you are interested in being a part of the Navarro College Team! The Federal College Work-Study Program was established by Congress to aid U.S. citizens and permanent residents in meeting educational expenses. Each year, Navarro College students fill many on-campus positions through funds allocated to this program.

To be eligible for a Federal Work-Study job, a student must have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), have unmet need, and must meet federal student aid eligibility requirements.

You can find and apply for work-study jobs though the campus financial aid office.

Here are a few things you should know:

IT’S A JOB!

A work-study position is a job and should be treated as any other source of employment. You will be expected to provide an hour’s work for each hour’s pay.

HOURS:

The Navarro College Financial Aid Office restricts employment in this program to 15 hours per week during the academic year. When assigning work hours, Navarro College will consider the student’s eligible award amount, class schedule, and academic progress.

PAY:

Students are paid by the hour. Wages for the program must equal to at least the current federal minimum wage but might be higher for returning work-study employees.

HOW YOU’RE PAID:

Students are paid by check once a month. If you work in Midlothian, Waxahachie, or Mexia, your check is delivered to your local campus business office.
