The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program is a need-based financial aid program. It provides funds that students earn through part-time employment to help pay the costs of their educational expenses.

Although a FWS award will appear on your award letter, funds must be earned. Funds earned are paid directly to you, monthly, and are not credited to your student account.

Other Work Opportunities

The colleges of DCCCD also provide a limited number of on-campus, part-time employment opportunities for students who do not demonstrate financial need. Your college Career Center often has information on available job openings for students off-campus.
