Students may earn up to $1,500 a year ($750 a semester) for federal/college work program. Work program is awarded based upon when the financial aid office received a student's completed FAFSA form. Once all the work program positions have been awarded, students are then placed on a wait list and will be awarded work program when positions become available during the fall/spring semester.
Student are not eligible to work until they have been awarded work program by the Financial Aid Office and returned a signed Student Employment Authorization form to the Financial Aid Office.
Work program is not credited to a student's account until the student earns the money. You will not see work program on a student's bill until the student earns the money and applies it to their student account.
All students who have been awarded Work Program, as part of their financial aid award for the 20012-2013 academic year, will be eligible to work on or off campus. Here is what you need to do in order to find a job under the Work Program at Alderson-Broaddus College.
