Work Study

What are work study jobs?

Work Study jobs are for students who qualify for Federal work study Financial Aid, and are available to students who have received a Financial Aid award that includes work study as part of their award package. 

How do I know if I am eligible for a Federal work study job?

When you receive your Financial Aid award letter it will indicate if you have received work study. 

How is Work Study different from regular student jobs?

Only students who have work study awarded with their Financial Aid are eligible to work in work study jobs.  Regular student jobs (non-work study) that are posted in Beaver JobNet are for all OSU students and any student can apply for these postings.
