Financial Aid

Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study is a federal government program whereby schools apply for, and are allocated federal funds to be spent each academic year in the form of FWS financial aid awards. These awards are given to eligible students who demonstrate financial need. Financial need is determined using a standard formula to evaluate the financial information reported on the students’ FAFSA. Students earn these awards by working part-time on or off campus and earning a paycheck which can be used to pay for educational or living expenses. Employment for Federal Work-Study is available as funding allows.

Student eligibility:

  • Full-time day students (12 credits minimum)
  • "FEDERAL WS" listed on the financial aid award letter
  • Making academic progress as detailed in the Academic Progress Standards as defined in the Alvernia Undergraduate Catalog.
  • $2,400 is the maximum amount of money the student may earn during the academic year
