Tuition & Aid

Federal Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study award provides employment opportunities in various campus offices. Work-Study awards are offered to full-time students with financial need, based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  On average, students work 10-12 hours per week. Students are paid at an hourly rate, listed on the Payroll webpage, and receive paychecks every two weeks for the hours worked. Work-Study will not be credited to the student's account.

Students are responsible for finding employment on campus. The jobs are posted on Handshake; for more, see the College's career Work-Study webpage. On the Sunday before classes begin each fall, a job fair is held. All prospective campus employers are represented.

Depending on the job, a student may be scheduled for an interview in the specific department or hired on the spot.

Nazareth College does not place students in campus jobs, nor does it guarantee students an on-campus job. In some cases, students may have to settle for something other than their first-choice job.

Employers from off campus are also represented at the job fair, in case a student wishes to pursue that route. Off-campus jobs are not part of work-study and do not count as financial aid.
