What is the Federal Work Study Process?

The Federal Work Study Process

On-campus work study jobs are not guaranteed. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.Please confirm via The Nest that all verification requirements have been satisfied.

You may apply directly via Handshake for any Federal Work Study position as well as in person to any hiring departments.  It is the student's responsibility to follow up with the department regarding interviews and/or the status of their search.

Returning work study students:

If you are returning to the same work study position as last year, please contact your supervisor so they may start the rehiring process.

If you are starting employment with a new department, follow the new work study student steps below.

New work study students:

Apply online at Handshake or visit the office in which you are interested in working.

Follow up directly with each department where you submitted a resume as many departments don’t communicate with applicants after positions are filled.

Once you have arranged for a position, your supervisor will submit hiring particulars in WorkDay.

If you have never worked before at Saint Joseph's University, you must complete additional forms that are available in WorkDay.

You must present identification from List A or from List B AND List C which is included in the pdf Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification in person in the Human Resources office on or before your first day of employment.

Human Resources is located in St. Mary's Hall (Hawk Hill campus).

You must complete these steps before reporting to work. Failure to follow this procedure may cause the cancellation of the work study award.

*Disclaimer: Federal Work Study jobs are not guaranteed. Eligible students may apply for jobs available via Handshake. FWS awards are dependent on the availability of funding and may be withdrawn or subject to change depending on this availability. Any financial aid package could be adjusted at any time according to federal and institutional regulations. Please read carefully the “Conditions Governing Financial Aid Awards” for further information found at sju.edu/finaidoffice.
