Federal Work Study (FWS)
The federal work-study (FWS) program provides the opportunity for students who demonstrate financial need through the FAFSA to seek part-time student employee positions through Joliet Junior College. Federal work-study students who are hired by departments are paid through the college with federal funds every two weeks. The work-study award may appear on a students' financial aid award letter if they indicated interest when filling out the FAFSA.
The Financial Aid Office determines who is eligible for FWS . If the award does not appear on your award letter, contact the Financial Aid Office to ask if you may be eligible for this program. Students who are not eligible for federal work-study may also work as student employees and are paid with college funds.
