Determine a Student's Eligibility for FWS

Before seeking FWS employment, students must check their award status on AidLink to determine whether they have a FWS award.

After they log in to AidLink, students may view their Award Summary. If they have a FWS award, they can then access the FWS link, on the award page, describing:

  • The types of jobs available
  • How to get started finding a job
  • How many hours they can work, rate of pay, etc.
  • A link to the list of posted jobs

If a student has not been awarded FWS

Students who are not awarded FWS should contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to find out if FWS can be added or if their student loan eligibility can be converted to a FWS award. Converting loan eligibility to FWS is NOT automatic, so please refer these students to us.
