Work Study Program
This program is designed to assist students who are in need of employment to pursue their education. Work is performed on campus, and the student may work up to a maximum of 13 hours per week at minimum wage depending upon the amount of his or her work study award.
Priority is given to students with the lowest EFC, determined by information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), who also receive Federal Pell Grants. There is no guarantee that every eligible student will receive or renew a work-study award, so it is important to apply early to have a better chance of receiving a job. Work-Study awards are based on the availability of funds at Troy University.
In addition to the Work Study program, the Troy Campus of the University has a regular campus work program through which many students are assisted each year; it is called Workship. You apply for Workship through the hiring department; a list of departments can be obtained by checking with Troy University Human Resources. Also there are numerous off-campus jobs available for persons wishing to find part-time employment. There are other work programs at the other campuses; check with the campus Human Resources Department or Career Center.
